Namba Parks is within comfortable walking distance from where I stayed - Swissotel Nankai Osaka.

It is a green-lung amidst the concrete jungle of the railway complex. Namba Parks, festively decorated for Christmas, is good for the garden landscape that defines it. The shops are nothing short of phenomenal! They seem to have everything under one roof. Plus a theatre section.

We stayed across the road at the Fraser Residence and I thought before I got there it was a park where we would be able to play and sit! Actually it was an amazing development with shops, restaurants and spots to sit and watch people. Great views to be had from the glass elevators and beautifully lit up at night.

Connected to Nankai Namba Station. A short walk from Namba Station of Kintetsu Line, Namba Station of subway midosuji Line and ennichimae Line, Namba Parks is the convinient place for traveller to come. It is a multiple shopping complex. Some shops and restaurants made their debut in Kansai area. Outdoor event space is round theater. Also equipped with roof top garden, Parks Garden. It is an oasis in the city where people can enjoy trees and flowers while taking a walk and can rest on the benches. Memorial plates are buried at the spot, where home plate and pitching plate were located. More shops targeting adult men and women. Cinema complex and specialty stores opened as well. A great attraction which our must come to see.

Namba Parks is a must see! It's in the Namba Nankai Station along with Takashimaya Dept. store. (It appears Swissotel is adjoining it as well as the rapid express from Kansai)
***. Go at night - it is SO pretty! Couldn't stop looking up and taking photos before we even entered/went up the escalator. There are so many shops and restaurant choices.
We ate udon and tempura for our last sit down meal - it was delicious and reasonably pricedt!!! They have baskets under the table for you to put your purchases and hangers next to your table if you wanted to hang a coat although it was so HOT outside we were in summer attire.
*The server and cook helping us were young and cute and so delightful as they tried to ask if we wanted hot or cold noodles. Go early enough to go through the shops and eat. It was perfect for our last night in Osaka as the next night we were on our way back to Kansai Airport and took bentos we bought in the super market next to our hotel.
*If I am back in Osaka, I'd come again and give myself more time there...we had spent the day at Umeda Sky Building then to Spa World so these were the 3 best things we did all in one day!
*We did have time to go into 1 store and it had the cutest hand made Japanese items with cats, dogs, rabbits, etc. I got 2 stuffed animals - one seal and one penguin toy for omiyage for my family. They were very cute and not pricey. Enjoy Namba Parks - don't miss it if you are a shopper and like cool architecture, good food.
