JP2012 - Doutonbori

One of Osaka's most popular tourist destinations, Doutonbori is a large scale downtown along the south bank of the Doutonbori-gawa Canal.



Each side of the canal is thronged with a massive amount of restaurants, shopping, and amusement facilities.



Thus, it is a popular shopping and entertainment district and is also known as a food destination.



At night, Doutonbori is lit by hundreds of neon lights and mechanized signs; think New York Times Square along Venice’s Grand Canal!!



Obviously, Doutonbori is best viewed at night and one must not miss the famous Glico Running Man sign!!

JP2012 - Hotel Brighton City

Hotel Brighton City is possibly one of the most affordable contemporary and stylish hotel in Osaka.



While the exterior looks like a squarish boring concrete building, the interiors’ clean and sleek design provides a welcoming and relaxing ambience.



Applying the same concept to the rooms, it turned the compact 20 square metre room into a sophisticated but comfortable space.



Among the amenities that really stood out is the in-room humidifier, located next to the comfortable bed.



Within the stylish bathroom, there’s also a separated rain shower and a bath tub fitted with a peekaboo window.



And to top things off is the President Desk, a 160 cm wide stand-alone writing desk with a whole host of gadgets, like the VOIP phone, one-touch control panel, a laptop safety box and a built-in mini bar.



Just a word of caution though to those itchy hands who like to remove items from hotel rooms, there is a price for almost everything in the room!!



Yes, even for the hand soap!!
