Good for Shopping

Huge market with plenty of shops. One can literally shop till you drop. It's very crowded at almost anytime of the day. It's also near Dotonbori, a food paradise.

This is a festive shopping area whether you are there in the day time or pop by at night. Actually it looks quite different at night with all the lights on and the air of festivity is quite catching.

Tke the public transit to Namba station and take exit 14 for Dotonburi. Place is alive with many restaurants and neon lights. There is a canal along which you can take a short boat ride.

Shinsaibashi was a fun place to shop and dine. It has a variety of shops, both high end to the 100 yen store! Everyone in our group had a blast searching for last minute gifts. It was easy to wander through the stores, then meet up with the group because it is a long mall and you go in and... More

Shops are average but way too many people... not really a good shopping experience. Can skip if you don't have a lot of time.

Similar to the Ginza area of Tokyo, and similar to Bond St or Rodeo Drive. A long, wide and attractive avenue of designer brands. A pleasant walk

Shop, shop, shop. Shop till you drop. We don't shop, so there is not much to tell you. Except: explore the side streets. Some interesting cafes and restaurants. Look up, because a lot of them are not on street level.

Good area to shop AND eat! You'll never finish this area in a day... we spent 2 days & still so much to see & do. Raining? No worries, the streets have roofs so you can roam around without getting wet. A must go to place when in Osaka.
