TravelPod Member ReviewsYamatoya Honten Osaka
This was my second stay at Yamatoya Honten and I love it. They have 24 hour lobby with no curfew which is great if you're planning on partying around Dotonburi and Namba. The staff are courteous and helpful and many speak English. There's internet in the lobby and a huge shared bath. Easy to find on the edge of Dotonburi and 5 mins walk from either Namba or Nipponbashi stations. A++ for the price around $75 a night per person with cheaper rates for longer stays.

... side with major roadways, shopping strips, restaurants - a real juxtaposition of the old and new Japan that I found particularly intriguing.
I'll start by briefly mention Kyoto Station - apparently dubbed 'The Cube'. I've said that Japan's train stations are like our airports, but that's really probably not doing justice to these stations! The Cube had a twenty-something storey complex emanating out of the top of it that we didn't even get to touch, and we were ...
