DESTINATIONS japan osaka Shopping Yodobashi


Do you need a new memory card for your camera, a back-up charging device for your phone or a fresh set of headphones? Then there’s no better place to go than Yodobashi Camera. Within you get all kinds of electronic devices, good services and low prices. In case you get hungry during your shopping tour there are also a number of sweets and gourmet shops within the building.


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.
