UNIVERSAL CITYWALK OSAKA, Osaka

4.0
#11 of 72 in Shopping in Osaka
Head for US-style shopping with a Japanese twist at UNIVERSAL CITYWALK OSAKA. Sitting just outside the gates to universal studios, the shopping mall features a number of restaurants selling local signature dishes, including Japanese barbeque, sukiyaki and sushi, and ramen noodles. Two hotels also call the mall home, as well as retail stores and a children’s toy museum. Try to get here early and make your restaurant reservation in advance, as local eateries are known to get quite full. A visit to UNIVERSAL CITYWALK OSAKA represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Osaka vacation builder to plot your vacation.

    There are actually quite a number of worthwhile dining options here, including the takoyaki museum, and not overpriced (compared to the Citywalk/Downtown Disneys in the US.

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.
