Dotonbori is located in the middle of Osaka Minami, a popular city in Japan. How has this town with a long history of former playhouses and teahouses evolved? Let's introduce the charm of Dotonbori while sharing the latest tourism situation of Dotonbori.

What is Dotonbori?
First of all, the story of Doton Yasui is indispensable when talking about the history of Dotonbori. He is a merchant who was active in the late 16th and early 17th centuries and is the creator of Dotonbori. In 1612, the excavation of the Horikawa, which connected the Higashi Yokobori River and the Nishi Yokobori River, which had become moats at the south end, to the Kizu River was started. But he died in the summer of Osaka, and the canal was completed in 1615 by his cousin, Yasuto Michito. It was named “Dotonbori” in order to pass on the achievements of Doton Yasui, who had invested enormous private property to excavate.

After that, Yasui Michito moved Dotonbori's promotion plan to relocate the playhouses gathered in Minamisenba to the south side of the Dotonbori River. The theaters such as Kabuki, Giutao, and the show were certified by the shogunate huts and prospered. The neighborhood was bustling and became a play town called Sakaimachi.

And “Namaya Goza” is a theater that represents both Japanese theater and entertainment, both in name and reality, and is surrounded by countless theater huts and theaters that serve visitors by arranging theater tickets and providing food and drink. It was lined up. It is also called “Japan's Broadway”, and Dotonbori is a long-awaited stage for entertainers aiming for first-class, and it continues to be crowded with many spectators as the center of theater and theater.

The city of Dotonbori

Dotonbori is also called “Kuidaore Town”, but this seems to be related to the locality and the temperament of the Osaka people.

Osaka's food culture, called the kitchen in the world, has been developed as a “dish that makes use of soup stock” with a thin taste.

As for the soy sauce that colors the food, the Osaka people use light soy sauce, so the color and fragrance are suppressed, and the taste and color of the ingredients stand out more. In addition, there are plenty of high-quality liquors in the surrounding areas such as Kashiwa and Ikeda.

Dotonbori, the center of Osaka, blessed with a food-related environment, was a busy area where the mouthful and discerning Osaka people visited to eat. Would have developed as.
