Dotombori Streets

The alleys and laneways of Dotombori are some of the liveliest in Osaka, very reminiscent of those in the movie 'Bladerunner', and which come alive after night-fall, a must for any visitor to Japan to experience!

While this may not be Gangnam-style, Korean Gogigui (BBQ meats cooked at your table) is one of my all time favourites, usually served with lettuce, kimchi and an assortment of sauces, washed down with cold Soju, good enough to put a smile on anyone's face! Seoul, South Korea.
