Route Map and boarding locations

A. Dotonbori 2
The Dotonbori 2 Wonder Cruise boarding point is about 2-3 minutes walk from bus stop 13 Dotonbori Teppan-Jinya and   here you can visit DOTON PLAZA for tax free shopping or take a stroll along Dotonbori shopping street and river.

Points how to find the Dotonbori 2 cruise stop -If you are standing in front of the Glico man sign and facing the sign, turn to your left and walk along the river on the same side as the Glico Man sign. The cruise stop is about 5 min walk away. Including the bridge next to the Glico man (Ebisu bridge) you will walk under three bridges and just before you reach bridge four (Nihonbashi bridge), there is the Dotonbori 2 cruise stop.

Unfortunately we are not allowed to put up a sign there, it is just a small gate with a padlock, but the boat will always stop to check for passengers.

If you take the subway here, get off at Nippombashi Station (S17/K17) on the Sennichi (pink) or Sakaisuji (brown) subway lines.
