  • There are many shops of food, souvenirs, clothing, etc, you can find fun things, but there are a lot of people and is somewhat difficult to see the shops not to fast.

  • Cluttered. That's the appeal of Osaka? I think that atmosphere, energetic but not sophisticated city. Famous still abound, so also belly reduce go to.

Where to stay in Osaka

The majority of Osaka's moderate and expensive accommodations concentrate in the districts of Umeda, Kyobashi, Namba, and Shin-Osaka. Base your stay in or near Minami neighborhood for proximity to a wide selection of shopping and dining options. For quick access to long-distance transportation to other cities and areas, look for hotels in Kita district. Many backpackers prefer the budget options in the Tennoji area, where the quality of rooms and prices vary wildly--call or check websites of specific establishments before you make reservations.
