Dowtown“AWAJI “ is a part of this city, Osaka. It is NOT Awaji Island.
“Shitamachi” is neither traditional landscape nor downtown. It is rooted on tradition, but tied to modern cultural context. Well, it means simply just a town as it is! Awaji is convenient enough to buy daily things. There is a bit old shopping street and it’s quite reasonable for eating, drinking and shopping.
If you are interested in having the experience of downtown Awaji culture in Osaka, we would love to share the information about stores and restaurants that only locals know its cheep and cool. It is often difficult for foreigners to get inside so we will support them to go inside of these local places.
