What to do in Namba!

If you are going to Osaka for the first time, I recommend you head to Namba district!

Namba Yasaka Shrine

Location: 2 Chome-9-19 Motomachi, Naniwa Ward, Osaka, 556-0016, Japan

This shrine is famous for its grand lion head. It is near Namba park and if you go on the right day, you can see festivals and rituals done at this shrine!

Namba Parks

Location: 2 Chome-10-70 Nanbanaka, Naniwa Ward, Osaka, 556-0011, Japan

Namba Parks is a beautifully constructed mall with its own garden. It’s filled with shops ranging from clothes to furniture to cosmetics. There are many restaurants as well.


Namba Grand Kagetsu

Location: 11-6 Nanbasennichimae, Chuo Ward, Osaka, 542-0075, Japan

If you have any interest in Osaka comedy, then head to this theater! Osaka comedy is pretty different from ones you see in Tokyo, so if you know some Japanese, sit down for a show. If you don’t know any Japanese, I think the actions and movements are enough to understand what is happening.

Kuromon Market

Location: 2 Chome-4-1 Nipponbashi, Chuo Ward, Osaka, 542-0073, Japan

This market street has many shops full of street food and other restaurants. If you are in a room with a kitchen, there is a bunch of seafood here too if you want to buy some crab or fish. Also there are shops with some great snacks!
