    Or visit the store still in the den-den town you have here do not select guides. Be sure to visit the jungle, if you look at the balk. So many characters and figures are holding onto people's ankles. There are several shopping malls in their time, it is recommended that you allow visibility.

    The district has enough shops where to buy figures and objects of themed anime and manga and at a price more reduced than in Akihabara. That if, do not have the glamour of the frequent neighborhood.

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.
