Try to visit but be prepared to get sore legs. The shops on offer are not the best place to do your shopping but the eateries there are plentiful.

Awesome area. For the reviewer that called it sleazy, well I feel it is what is is. lots of awesome food though. Lots of bars too. There are tons of tourists here though, so that can be a minus. For the reviewer that said it is better than Umeda, it is a totally different scene, and also costs a lot... More

lots of shopping, eating, but so noisy and sleazy especially in the late night. Many tourists because tourist books show this.

Enjoy Namba (South) better than Umeda (North). The food selection is great. We tried Mizuno Okonomiyaki, NIku Udon (small store), and Sukiyaki in Takashimaya Food Court. And don't forget Takoyaki. Shopping selection is plenty. Trarin station a lil bit not centralized. SInce JR Namba, Namba subway, and Namba Nankai is not very close to each other. Pretty common in Japan... More

Lots of shopping to be done in the area! Especially for girls who are crazy about drugstore cosmetics. There are a lot of restaurants and ramen shops all around. A shopping paradise! Worth the visit.

It's a place where you have to be if you want to go to/from Kansai Airport. Stayed in Swissotel in Namba, and I found out that there are a long of shops, including Takashimaya, a very big department store.

If you are into shopping and local food then Namba is a place to stay. Its a bit pricy compare to other sides, but worth it as its convenient as you can find everything near your hotel.
