Osaka Shopping Guide

A thriving port city on Japan’s largest island of Honshu, Osaka is the second largest metropolitan area in Japan behind the capital city, Tokyo. It's known for its bustling city streets, striking architecture, lively nightlife, foodie scene, and, of course, shopping. Locals' devotion to shopping is easily apparent in the city's miles of shopping arcades, malls, and streets filled with world-class stores featuring high-end brands, discount chains, and thrift shops.

Umeda (Kita)

Umeda, also known as The Kita or north district in Osaka, is one of two main city centers (the other being Namba). Many of Osaka's hotels are located in this busy hub. Osaka Station City is located here. It’s a large railway station with a glass roof that spans the railway tracks. Newly renovated buildings on the north and south sides of the station offer many shopping, dining, and entertainment opportunities. Osaka City Station includes Damairu, Lucua, Lucua 1100, Tokyu Hands, and Pokemon Center Osaka.Umeda is also home to Grand Front Osaka, a one-stop-shopping destination with more than 260 vendors; Hankyu Umeda Main Store, one of Japan’s largest department stores; and Yodobashi Camera, which is an electronics shopping haven. Hanshin Department Store is well-known among the people of Osaka for its rich variety of foods. It is a good place to find items like Kombu Kelp and Sembei Rice Crackers. A local favorite, the Tenjimbashi-suji shopping arcade has a unique high-vaulted roof that creates an open-air market atmosphere along a mile and a half (2.6 km) of assorted boutiques, restaurants, and cafes. Shoppers can find handbags, shoes, toys, flowers, and everyday goods.

She explained everything in detail, was very patient, directed me in a way that made me feel completely at home and comfortable and was able to create an atmosphere in which we both just had a lot of fun!
We got to choose the kimonos and accessories we liked among a variety of them and we had a great time with a lot of laughter during the whole shooting.
#2 of 413 Shopping in Osaka
Beautiful display of knives to look at and the shop assistant explained to us the different cabinets and she managed to ride that perfect line between being helpful and letting us look at our own pace.
Next time when I'm in Osaka and need a knife-you going to be my place to be! PS: The price is nice there too, very similar in every knife shop in Osaka but the service was the best!
