Shopping!

Lots of shops, good prices. A bit disorganized compared to Tokyo but great fun. It's very crowded but not in an annoying way. Lots of places to eat, drink and shop.

I went here to see the Rock Band Dokken. They played at an amazing venue called the Namba Hatch. Don't miss a chance to see a band here! Cool building with lovely architecture in an amazing part of Namba with great sound. Namba area is so fun, lots of great shops and restaurants, you won't be disappointed.

Minami and Dotonbori are the places which best portray the fun and wacky side of Osaka. Join the crowd and take in the neon colors around you. I'd recommend visiting namba slightly later at night.

This area is more geared towards shopping for high end products. Several big malls are located in this area. Food choices are also available right outside the malls so you dont have to burn your wallet to satisfy your tummy. Banks are also located in this area and offer better rates than those money exchange shops in Dotonbori.
