Snapshot: The Glico Man of Dotonbori – Osaka, Japan

Dotonbori is the gastronomic epicenter of Osaka, Japan. This world-famous street runs from Dotonbori Bridge to Nipponbashi Bridge, and on both sides stand dozens of restaurants whose facades are adorned with enormous, electronic displays.

Many of these neon billboards have become permanent landmarks of the district. One of them — the Glico Man. Installed in 1935, this giant smiling athlete is a symbol of Glico candy.
