Around Namba: "Shopper's Delight" Osaka Shopping Tip by vic&michael

Osaka Shopping: 56 reviews and 55 photos

If you get off at Namba Station, there are many many underground shops, mostly catering for women (women's clothing, shoes, jewellery, bags...). You can get lost in there! It's like a rabbit warren! But don't worry, it's great to get lost amongst the shops... and just ask someone to point you in the right direction back to the station when you want to go home. Also, outside Namba Stn, there is Namba Parks, a very flash/stylish shopping mall, medium-expensive shops, and lots of restaurants too. There's also a covered shopping arcade nearby... souviner shops, clothing, accessories, food...
Shoppers with good stamina can spend the whole day shopping and eating! yay :-)
Shops open around 10am till 9-10 pm.

Directions: Namba Station.
Theme: Women's Clothes

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
