Osaka Tombori River Cruise & Dotonbori

Murah Meriah Menyusuri Sungai Osaka

Tombori River Cruise Guide

Obyek wisata pertama yang dikunjungi di Osaka adalah wisata menyusuri Sungai Tombori yang terletak di daerah Dotonbori. Dotonbori sendiri adalah salah satu tempat wisata paling banyak dituju di Osaka. Wujudnya berupa satu jalan lurus, sepanjang kanal Dotonbori di Namba. Tempat ini sebelumnya dikenal sebagai daerah 'merah' dan teater kuno, tapi keduanya sudah tidak ada, digantikan dengan toko dan restoran.

Here's the first tourist spot that I went to in Osaka, Tombori River Cruise. It's in the famous Dotonbori area, which is a premier downtown shopping area.

Here's an entry about the place in Wikipedia :
Dōtonbori (道頓堀?, pronounced [doːtomboɽi]) is one of the principal tourist destinations in Osaka, Japan. It is a single street, running alongside the Dōtonbori canal between the Dōtonboribashi Bridge and the Nipponbashi Bridge in the Namba ward of Osaka. A former pleasure district, Dōtonbori is famous for its historic theatres (all gone now), its shops and restaurants, and its many neon and mechanised signs, including snack/candy manufacturer Glico's giant electronic display of a runner crossing the finish line.

River Cruise

Berikut foto-foto yang diambil selama menyusuri Tombori dan pemandangan jalanan Dotonbori yang terkenal. Pemandunya ceria dan baik, tapi sepanjang cruise, panduannya menggunakan bahasa Jepang, jadi tidak banyak yang saya mengerti, tapi tetap enjoy.

 Here's the snapshot I took while on the river cruise. Loads of interesting things to see, and the guide is quite chirpy and cute, though speaking in Japanese only, which I hardly understood but nonetheless still enjoyed.

Dotonbori (道頓堀)

 Dotonbori ini adalah salah satu pusat belanja dan kuliner yang paling terkenal di Osaka. Perlu minimal setengah hari untuk menyusuri tempat ini. Ada beragam tempat menarik yang bisa dikunjungi, selain gerai-gerai terkemuka, ada juga tempat makan enak, ditambah dengan kuil yang indah di tengah-tengahnya.
Supaya tidak terlalu panjang, kuil di Osaka yang bernama Hozenji ini akan saya bahas di post lain.

Dotonbori is one of the prominent shopping and culinary destination in Osaka. You'd need at least half a day to really explore the place, we ended spending the whole day here.
There's a lot of interesting store, like the Rosebud by forever 21 and various eating places which is really insteresting. There's also a beautiful temple in the center, called Hozenji, which I will blog in another post.

Kamakura Vending Machine Restaurant

Kamakura
Salah satu resto yang menarik di sini adalah Kamakura. Biasnaya kalau berhadapan dengan resto yang menggunakan vending machine begini, suasananya ala kadar dan pilihannya tidak banyak. Di sini pilihan menunya lengkap, tempatnya bersih dan menarik. Layak dicoba untuk yang gemar. Sayang saat itu saya sudah menikmati Okonomiyaki, jadi sudah kekenyangan saat melewati resto satu ini.


Kamakura is quite interesting. Usually when I encountered this small restaurants which uses vending machine to take order, the place is usually lackluster and a bit untidy, with a nimble selection of dishes. This one have a decent menu, a clean tidy place and interesting layout. I'd love to try it, too bad I already had Okonomiyaki, hence was already full when passing by it.
