Glico Man – Osaka’s iconic photo spot (How to go and what to expect)

One of Osaka’s landmarks is the Glico Man sign which was installed during 1935.

It has been one of the most photographed parts in Osaka as it serves as a “hint” that you’re there.

How to find the Glico Man sign:

1. Get down at Namba Station

I took some photos with the Glico Man sign since I didn’t have any decent ones prior to this trip.

most Glico man photos will look like this. This photo was still okay since there weren’t a lot of people at the time but it was still challenging to have a good shot
