Dotonbori is one of the principal tourist destinations in Osaka, Japan. Running along the Dotonbori canal from Dotonboribashi Bridge to Nipponbashi Bridge in the Namba district of the city's Chuo ward, Dotonbori is a popular nightlife district filled with good food, exciting entertainment options, and an eccentric atmosphere. The area is well-known for the giant illuminated signboards, including the famous runner crossing a finish line for the Glico confectionery company.
