This is the famous bridge linking Dotomburi and Shinsaibashi shopping street. It is a very good place to take pictures of the surrounding area, especially of the Glico man. Every during the New Year countdown, someone will jump from the bridge into the canal below.

Osaka has some good shopping districts and interesting gambling and gaming houses. I liked the 100¥ shops tho.

Catch the ferry or go on the Ferris wheel. It's a lovely spot for a photo with a difference. Worth a visit if you're already in the area.
