City of Kuidaore (27)

City of Kuidaore (27)
Kuidaore is a Japanese word meaning roughly “to ruin oneself by extravagance in food.” It is sometimes romanised as cuidaore, and is part of a larger proverb: "Dress (in kimonos) till you drop in Kyoto, eat till you drop in Osaka".

The word is associated with Dotonbori, and is often used in tourist guides and advertisements. It can be seen in the names of several locations in Dotonbori, such as the mascot Kuidaore Taro (closed) and the defunct restaurant Cui-daore.
