Exploring Osaka

Osaka is split into two main districts, which meet the Chuo-odori. Kita-ku, the northern ward around the main Osaka and Umeda stations, is where many of the city's big hotels, restaurants, and underground shopping precints are found. It also includes the small island of Nakanoshima, between Dojima and Tosabori rivers. Minami-ku, the southern districh, includes the lively downtown area called Namba, the core of the old merchant city where you will find Osaka's best eating and drinking options, including Dotonbori. Namba's many pedestrian shopping zones include America Mura and Europe-dori, with their imported goods.

    Your write-up, as usual, is very good. Your restaurant tips, as usual, are making me hungry :) Adding Takoyahi to my list of things to try at least once.
