This is a famous theatre for the Yoshimoto stable of comedians, and as such is a mainstay of Japanese comedy. However, if you don't speak Japanese there's nothing here at all for you. The shows could be interesting in a "I have no idea what's going on but hey - Japan!" -sort of way, but aside from that, best leave... More

The Shinsaibashi area is hard to distinguish unless you are a local. Shinsaibashi bleeds into this from Dotonbori around Nanba and on your way to Nipponbashi. It's full of asian restaurants, arcades, and nightlife. Not particularly worth looking for, though, unless you already happen to be in the area.

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.
