Nakaza Cuidaore Building

Architect:  Yasumichi Morita

Location: Osaka, Japan

Year built: ??

The buildings on the Dotonbori street from Namba, Osaka are renowned for their extravagant billboards (for example see the Kani Doraku Crab or the Kinryu Ramen). But not only the billboards are special on Dotonbori – you can also find here some interesting buildings, like the one in this photo, the Nakaza Cuidaore.

With 6 floors housing restaurants, coffee shops, karaoke venues and souvenirs shops, the building is the work of a well known Japanese designer, Yasumichi Morita. The small black silhouettes on the white pyramidal decorations are representing one of the symbols of Dotonbori, Kuidaore Taro, a life-size mechanical drum-playing clown (you can spot him in the photo, right at the entrance, wearing clothes with red and white stripes).
