Hi guys,

has anybody been to hotel toyo in Dobutsuen-mae/Nishinari (just outside Osaka)? The hostel itself is not too bad,however,the town its in is horrible and dirty. Full of old drunken dirty men!

Just wanted to know if anyone has ever been here and experienced the same thing or is it just us being snobby!? We have just come from Tokyo so Osaka was a big anti-climax anyway but it definetly does feel rough!:(

Hi there,

It's a funny description... hehehehehe...
I've been to Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto...
Clearly these 3 places differs from each other.

I would say that Tokyo is filled with well-dressed people carrying branded bags. People dressing to the nines.
As for Osaka, I see people wearing bedroom slippers in the trains. Under-dressed but still something to look at.
Finally Kyoto, people are more casual in their dressing. I would fit in this town nicely.

This reminds me of Goldilocks and the 3 Bears... three different beds.. one too hard, one too soft and finally, one that is just nice... :-)

cheers...
