This place is full of branded store. For me this place resemble new york area. But no halal food nearby for muslim tourist. Somwe just go to family mart or lawson to buy bread or go to Ali kitchen for halal food. Average price but marvellous food.

This is the place where you can shop. It has Daimaru, Apple there. But I recommend Umeda, where you can have a larger range of goods.

I was at a street corner with 3 or 4 huge guitar stores right next to each other and they carried the high end guitars which I have not seen anywhere else in Japan. The people are dressed from gothic, punk to European dolls. There was even a... More

You need more than a day to go through all the shops here. This is certainly a must-visit for everyone who loves shopping and wants to see what Osaka/Japan has... More
