“Great shopping”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

From the underground extensive network of shopping streets in the train station, Namba Walk, the high end Takashimaya, street shopping, Muji, etc, you'd love the place if you are a shopaholic. I didn't have time to cover all as I only dedicated one evening to Namba shopping. One other night was at the Dotonbori, Shinsaibashi side. They are very near though. You can cover these in a day! =)

“So much to see and do”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

Loved shopping in the Namba area, mainly, Takashimaya and Muji. Some of the most famous images of Osaka, including the Glico Man and the Kani Doraku Crab, are located around the Dōtonbori canal in Namba. Namba is also known as an entertainment district, and hosts many of the city's most popular bars, restaurants, nightclubs, arcades, and pachinko parlours. Don't forget there's plenty to also see underground with the Namba Walk.

“Have it all.”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

At Namba Station, the Rapid train from Kansai Airport ends here. Shopping at the stores and at Takashima is just fantastic. Walk out and go to Shinsaibashi and Dotonburi. Namba is truly great place.

“Exciting entertainment”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Energy, fun filled, go, go,go, busy, young!! These words best describe this area. Go and be amazed. The Namba station underneath is also amazing. Many entrances and it has everything.
