A must visit area once you’re in Osaka. The Glico signboard. There’s also a river cruise. A heaven for you guys who would like to taste local food. Not only one, but there’s too many of them.

Me and my mom visited here last Dec. 20, 2017. We are so happy that we visited this place, one of the popular tourist destination here in Osaka. There is a lot of restaurant along the way. Also a clothes and shoe store.
