Our last stop before hitting Osaka is Naruto, a small town off the coast.

Before ending our day, we will spend some time at Osaka, Dotonbori, a popular tourist district for dining, shopping, and entertainment. The street is lit by hundreds of neon lights at night time, keeping the town lively throughout the night.
