Compared to other local attractions we didn't really see why this was ranked so highly. There isn't much to see or do unless you want to see a show. However it is close to Dotonbori and Shinsaibashi so if you want to take a quick look you could.

What a great place for people watching,not a shopping venue,but a place to see the Japanese youth doing their "thing"People were very friendly here and were happy to talk about their lifestyle and local customs,they were very interested in Australia and our native animals and I think they liked practising their language skills on us,quite fun and very interesting.

The two streets running alongside the Doutonburi canal and busy and garish, but still fun; so experience what everyone else has and enjoy yourself. However, go off the main thoroughfare and you will find some great restaurants. Small, reasonably priced, and really good food.

We took a walk expecting for something more special, but did not find it that attractive. Just very crowded with lots of shops.

In correspondence with the Nanba subway station, this place has the best nightlife spots in the whole city same as Osaka Dotonbori. Of course if you're looking for fun good food and lots of young people, in short, this is the right place.

You can't do Dotonbori without Shinsaibashi. The other half of the Osaka nightlife, Shinsaibashi affords tourists and locals alike with plenty of avenues to spend their evenings -bars, clubs, arcades, food and more. Fantastic vibe.

Very hot and busy in August. However a multitude of shops and places to eat. You could get everything you want from here and although we only spent a couple of nights in osake did not stray from area.

We explored this area a lot during our stay, three nights we spent here and we did something different each time! The shopping is amazing, the lights and atmosphere rivals Tokyo, and the people are just lovely (even the host club staff). Theres loads of retaurants, all good value and great food. We went to the cinema around here too... More
