Where you’ll go

In the central Namba neighborhood, you can go gadget crazy in Nipponbashi’s pop-culture parlors and mega electronics stores, where you can peruse through the worlds of otaku, vintage vinyl music and the latest in all things technology. But just over the Dōtonbori Canal in neighboring Shinsaibashi, you’ll find an eclectic mix of mega-department stores and cult fashion havens - the city’s shopping paradise. Hone in on Amerikamura, the ‘American Village’ and you’ll find a warren of streets that showcase the latest and greatest in Japanese street culture. Or perhaps visit more off-beat districts like Shinsekai, a former slum stuffed with secret kimono stores and quirky boutiques.
