A photo opp and an iconic sight of Osaka, it's worth it to see it all lit up at night and to wander afterwards for some snacks nearby!

No trip to Osaka is complete without a selfie with the iconic Glico running man. After all, this flashy and eye-catching icon has been one of the famous symbols of Osaka, for years. After a photo-op with the Dotombori Glico Sign, explore the area, and be enthralled by its marvelous TV screens, billboards and neon signs. Alternatively, you can appease your taste buds with the mouthwatering dishes served at the restaurants in Dotombori.

The retro posters in Dotonbori will have you feeling like you are on a stroll through the 40’s. One poster not to miss is the Glico Man. If you can’t read the lettering, just look for the poster of a man that looks like he just won a race. This 33m poster was installed in 1935 as part of an anti-smoking campaign. The poster has changed a bit since 1935, switching from neon lights to LEDs, but you can still find it just above Ebishubashi bridge. It’s tradition to imitate the Glico Man for a picture - definitely an Instagram worthy shot.
