Insane adverts

Onward with our zip around the colourful city of Osaka. Full of adorable plushies, giant squid and all manner of colourful delights.


Osaka is made up of several different districts including the hectic Dōtonbori area.

Historically a theatre district, it’s now a popular nightlife and entertainment area with large illuminated billboards and quirky advertising.


I love all the oversized food adverts such as the sushi and puffer fish above.

Everything is cute, comical or downright peculiar. This odd man dressed as an angry old women is a case in point!

Below is the fantastical Don Quixote department store on the Dōtonbori canalside. It has its own ferris wheel – sadly no longer in use however.
