Souvenir shopping and street food
A fun place with bright signs and a noisy crowd. It's nice to just wander around, slowly eating takoyaki, bought right there on the street. There are many bars of different formats and you will not get sad from here.
In the middle of the street there is a Ferris wheel, you can ride in the evening, overlooking the evening Osaka.
Matsumoto Castle is the main historical attraction of the city, preserved in its original form, supplemented by a collection of firearms, despite the steep stairs, not a tiring visit.
A very beautiful castle, I can’t even believe that it is a military fortress, it is too beautiful and picturesque.
Near the castle there is a street dedicated to frogs. The whole street is souvenir shops. A lot of cute things that are more likely to be works of art than standard tourist rubbish. I took five frogs with me.
By the way, to the left of the entrance to the fortress there is a booth of volunteer guides who will give you a free tour of the castle in English.
