Dōtonbori or Dōtombori is one of the main tourist hotspots in Osaka and is full of highrise neon adverts.
It runs along the Dōtonbori canal from Dōtonboribashi Bridge to Nipponbashi Bridge in the Namba district and features the famous Glico man advert.
The Glico Man is the oldest neon sign in Osaka. Originally installed in 1935, the sign shows a giant athlete on a blue track and is a symbol of Glico candy.
Even though it looks very old fashioned and simple compared to the slick ads surrounding it, the Glico Man still has huge popularity amongst the locals, who meet here to celebrate sporting victories.
