Umeda, Namba, Den Den Town, and Ebisubashi. You don’t know these names yet, but after a day of splurging in Osaka, you sure will. This city is a shopper’s paradise, overflowing with fashion, electronics and all the souvenirs you could ever want, all under the guise of a very organized chaos. The only problem is, there’s so much to choose from! Luckily, your local host will help you sift through all that’s on offer, effortlessly navigating the maze that covers everything from kawaii cute cult fashion to otaku, or geek culture through quirky 100 yen shops and gleaming department stores. They’ll help you uncover the absolute best bargains, with no language barrier to slow the spree down and reveal Osaka’s most unique stores to you.
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.
