Osaka Station City

The Osaka Station City is not only the main railway station in Umeda but also a popular shopping place in the city. If you arrive to Osaka by train you can directly dive into shopping life and check out the many department stores and fashion centers within. Take your time to stroll through the building, there is much to see.


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.
