Osaka Japan Street Food Tour! Dotonbori Food Guide

  • Published on Feb 12, 2017
  • I went to the Dontonbori area of Osaka Japan and tried out the delicious street food there. This is where takoyaki was orignated and the home to osaka's version of Okonomiyaki also known as japanese pizza.

      It’s dried bonito flakes used as a garnish to give it a nice umami kick. It’s very thin shavings of a type of small tuna fish and the heat from the dish is warping it.
