DESTINATIONS japan osaka Shopping Lucua


This shopping center is a heaven for urban shoppers. Inside you can mingle with the hip local crowd looking for the latest fashion trends. Whether office or party life, you will find dresses for every occasion at Lucua.


Osaka’s shopping areas can be divided into four districts: Umeda, Namba, Shinsai-bashi and Tennoji. Umeda has some of the city’s largest department stores. Namba, also known as Minami, has the best food culture. Shinsia-bashi is arguably the main shopping area, where you will also find the popular Amerika-mura, a district with many American style shops. This is the place where many young Japanese come to check out the latest trends or just “hang out”. Look out for the tell-tale Statue of Liberty. At the Tennoji district you will find both priceless antiques and contemporary fashion.
