We went lux by staying in the pleasant Swissotel in Namba and indulging in the hotel restaurant’s traditional breakfast of rice porridge for our first day in Osaka. Those little pickled and savory dishes do add up and we almost had no space left in our bellies.
To walk breakfast off and get our bearings, we ambled our way a few blocks away and got drawn to a fresh seafood market. We wouldn’t miss any opportunity when it comes to the freshest seafood, so we literally ate our way through the market. Sea urchin, fat belly tuna, Takoyaki and mochi and sweets our eyes landed on… I guess we’ve found Dotonbori.
