    South Hepburn: Flowers from Hepburn

    by arianne_1504 Written Jun 26, 2010

    We found this gorgeous little flower shop just down the road from our hotel in Osaka (Vista Grande Hotel), and couldn't resist buying ourselves a little posy for our hotel room, just a little touch of luxury for the last days of our fantastic girls trip. The owner of the shop was extremely friendly and even carried our flowers to the door for us.

    What to buy: Whatever takes your fancy - and depending what's in season.

    What to pay: We paid approximately Y3000 for the bunch in the photo.

    Tsuruhashi: Kimuchi and Yakiniku Heaven

    by Circle88 Written Apr 26, 2010

    This is the Korean Market (at least the most famous) of Osaka. The surounding area is quite run down but has a nice feel to it. Lots of small shops selling Korean goods and many Yakiniku (Korean BBQ) restaurants can be found in the surounding area.

    What to buy: Kimuchi.

    Don quixote: From wine to sex toys to a ferris wheel

    by Circle88 Updated Apr 26, 2010

    A crazy selection of miscellaneous goods with the ferris wheel as a cherry on top. This is a chain store but the main place is the Dotonbori store. Take your time to browse through what ever there is in stock.

    What to buy: Check the costume section.

    What to pay: Up to you.

    Osaka is big city with lots of shopping malls and streets. Nothing in particular to recommend here beside that is such big city it is like a shopping heaven. Myself I already have all what I need ;-) So I didn't really look to buy anything special and I didn't wanted to carry anything all the back home either :)

    Tenjinbashi Shopping Street: Longest Shopping Street in Japan

    by nexusangel Written Feb 11, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This shopping street spans a length of 2.6km!

    They have shops of all sorts here.. Food, clothes of any kind, shoes, bags, lingerie, drugstores...
    And there is even pachinkos and hair salons.

    I have personally found many great deals here.. like 1000yen for a winter jacket.

    On the north end is where Tenjinbashi-roku-chome Stn is, Ogimachi Stn and Minami-morimachi stn is located somewhere in the middle.
    It ends off near the river Daikawa (?)
    So the Shoutengai (shopping street) can be accessed via any of these 3 stations.

    Plenty of restaurants, cheap and expensive, here.

    The shrine Tenmangu is located nearby as well.

    by moacha Written Dec 20, 2007

    Many souvenir things of Osaka are sold in the museum shop of the first floor of Osaka Castle. The gaufrette with which is drawing Hideyoshi on the package is very funny and the sweet which carried out the form of Osaka Castle is "Monaka "
    Monaka is small beans cream that was wrapped in the wafer of wheat.
    Usually, it is a cube. but this Monaka's form is castle.

    What to buy: The gaufrette with which is drawing Hideyoshi on the package is 1000yen.
    Monoka is 840yen.

    Umeda Station: Underground Shopping 2

    by nickinosaka Written Sep 22, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Umeda Station incorporates a major transit hub and enough stores to bankrupt a small nation. The Big Man TV is a common meeting point, and the Kinokuniya bookstore next to it is the best place to find English-language books in Osaka. There are also areas called the "Fashion Museum" and "Gourmet Museum." Clothes and food, yes, but nothing museumy about it. The place is enormous and sprawls under several city blocks, so be careful about getting lost. It took me a few visits before I learned my way around.

    Orange Street: Trendy Japan

    by nickinosaka Written Sep 22, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Orange Street is an area filled with trendy stores and boutiques, and it makes a great wander if you want to take in Japanese youth culture. Some of the stores are in architecturally interesting buildings, and you'll find all kinds of interesting t-shirts with odd saying on them.

    The Namba Walk: Underground Shopping!

    by nickinosaka Written Sep 22, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This isn't a single shop, but a long double corridor lined with lots of tiny shops and restaurants. When I worked in Osaka it was very close to work, so I would often eat there. There is a good katsu-don place on the OCAT end, and the noodle place across from it has good kare-udon. There are a couple bakeries, and lots of women's clothing boutiques. A bit of everything. It also serves as an underground passageway between the Osaka City Air Terminal, the Takashimaya department store, and the Namba Parks building. The east end puts you at Nipponbashi station and the north end of Den-Den (Electronics) town.

    Hoop Building: Shopping Near Tennoji, Part One

    by nickinosaka Written Sep 22, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Hoop building just outside Abenobashi station is a good place to sample Japanese shopping, at least at the high(ish) end. The top two floors are occupied by a Muji and a Loft, both of which are stores every visitior to Japan should visit. Muji is like the Ikea of Japan, and I'm very fond of their understated colours and textures. Loft is more colourful and dramatic, and you'll find all kinds of crazy toys, gadgets, and stationary in there. There are larger ones in the Shinsaibashi area, but if you're in a rush this is the place to go. The rest of the building is made up of high-end boutiques with restaurants on the bottom floor. I also like the architecture.

    Around Namba: Shopper's Delight

    by vic&michael Written Aug 31, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you get off at Namba Station, there are many many underground shops, mostly catering for women (women's clothing, shoes, jewellery, bags...). You can get lost in there! It's like a rabbit warren! But don't worry, it's great to get lost amongst the shops... and just ask someone to point you in the right direction back to the station when you want to go home. Also, outside Namba Stn, there is Namba Parks, a very flash/stylish shopping mall, medium-expensive shops, and lots of restaurants too. There's also a covered shopping arcade nearby... souviner shops, clothing, accessories, food...
    Shoppers with good stamina can spend the whole day shopping and eating! yay :-)
    Shops open around 10am till 9-10 pm.

    Only One: 100 Yen Shops

    by Hewer Updated Jul 7, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You pay the same amount for every item in the store (100 yen is about USD$0.90). They have quite a range of different things and if you're travelling, you could save a lot of money on necessities if you buy them here. The quality and range is much better here than in similar discount stores elsewhere.

    What to buy: For the visitor, there are several items of interest such as ornaments, traditional-looking ceramics, food and drink items, as well as the usual discount store fare. You can even get a large bowl of instant noodles.

    What to pay: 105 yen per item (they add 5 yen for sales tax).

    by Hewer Updated May 10, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There aren't many souvenir shops in Osaka. You are more likely to find these in Kyoto. One of the best here is Green Gift Shop in Osakako, near the aquarium.

    You are welcome to haggle here if you wish and you'll usually be given a few freebies for making a purchase.

    What to buy: Kimonos, Flags, Magnets, Postcards, Coasters, T-Shirts, Key-rings - all the tourist gear.

    Namba Parks: Shopping Gorge

    by OsakaHatter Updated May 3, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Namba Parks is a new shopping centre that opened in early 2004. It proves a remarkably pleasant shopping experience by Osakan standards as it has a very European feel to it, with wide open spaces, so it never feels too crowded.
    The centre has lots of cafes and eating places, and of course, shops placed in and around a manmade gorge cutting into the hillside.
    There is also a lot of landscaped garden space above and around the shopping area for people who just wanna sit and watch the world go by.

    What to buy: The big draw for foreigners is a number of western brand stores, such as Next and French Connection from the UK. Which means I can finally get clothes that fit in Japan!
