It’s mindblowing the amount of restaurants, shops and bars that are in this area. The lights are cool, it reminds of a mini Times Square by a river. You really are spoilt for choice for restaurants, so you either research or wing it. You can...More

When the sun goes down and the lights are on, this place is a slice of crazy magnificence. The crowds are awesome to behold, the food smells incredible and the atmosphere is just one of a kind.

A shopping heaven.. 4 streets full of souvenir shopping and food! The night view of the river is breathtaking. A must visit in Osaka. The King crab legs are a bit expensive but nonetheless worth to try if you're feeling rich..

It's a great place to visit but it does get very crowded. The buzz and the atmosphere are second to none. Great places to eat and watch people. Go early for dinner as you may find yourself quing but well worth a visit.

Crowded place where throngs of groups hang out at any of the many cafes, restaurants and roadside attractions. We had Osaka Amazing passes and took the river cruise to get away from the bustle. The cruise is the only way to get a decent photo...More

I assume you can, but it will be really tight and exhausting as there's loads to do in Hakone itself.

It might take less than an hour to get to the terminal from Osaka if you use public transportation. All JR, Hankyu, and Hanshin lines goes to Kobe.
