At Dotonburi, Namba, it is where you find the famous Glico Running Man and the Kani Doraku Crab signs.

Osaka is one big shopping district with many shopping areas. This area has many shopping alleys all well as the Bic Camera which is a huge building with all electronic items. You can spend all day in just this one building. Close station is Namba station. Just opposite Dotonbori Street and Shinsaibashi

There is a lot of shoppings and department stores near the Osaka station but I liked much more the stores in Namba. You can find tax free stores and a great variety of things to buy and places to try the food.

It is worth seeing the lights, the visual overload and do some shopping too! the nearby street with a multitude of restaurants is also really good fun (the facades have interesting themed giant "sculptures" made of fibre glass (I think); check out the giant moving crab above the shop front of a restaurant that serves... crab! It is fun.
