  • It's near Namba station, so you can just walk south to it. the stretch of road has all the shops you want to find at Akihabara, such as Kotobukiya or Cospa. But these shops may not have as much goods ...  more »
  • Quite small compared to Tokyo. Not that extensive or bright. But it did have some great stores for cheap figurines.  more »
  • It kind of has a seedy atmosphere but it is very safe. It is fun to walk up and down the street, listen to the noisy shop vendors beckoning you in. you can pick up a bargain and haggling is OK.  more »

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.
