Osaka Areas 大阪

Osaka, Japan's second city, consists of distinct areas from the central business district district around Shin-Osaka and the shinkansen stop in the north to the entertainment areas of Shinsaibashi, Dotonbori and Namba in the center of Osaka full of department stores, restaurants, bars and clubs. In between is the transport hub of Umeda, with connections to Kyoto and Kobe and a hive of business, retail and entertainment.

Nakanoshima is a cultural and administrative center of Osaka located on an island in the Yodogawa River.

Nipponbashi and its Den Den Town area is famous for its electronics shops, maid cafes and second-hand stores. Heading further south is the lively area of Tennoji, home to Osaka's Zoo and Tennoji Temple, one of the oldest Buddhist temples in Japan.

To the west is Osaka Port with its modern skyscrapers and museums.

Throughout its history, Osaka has been a commercial, warehousing and distribution center known for its shopping. See our detailed guide to shopping in Osaka including Osaka's underground malls, department stores, shotengai arcades and modern shopping centers such as Namba Parks and Harukas.
