Just north of Namba station, right before you get to Horie and Amemura you get this
little strip of awesomeness right next to the river.
Home to a wide variety of event spaces.
JR, Osaka Metro, Kintetsu, Hanshin, Nankai lines all have a ｢Namba｣ station right here.
｢Namba Walk ｣ underground shopping arcade links it all together with plenty of shopping
opportunities and convenient access to transportation.
Namba OCAT (Osaka City Air Terminal) is also right here.
Direct access to Kansai International and Itami Domestic Airports.
OCAT Terminal also houses a Daiso 100yen store, and Daiki Home Centre
Perfect for day-to-day necessities.

What else? Well, there is also a LIFE supermarket and a JUNKUDO book store!
Also directly connected to Namba Walk, not only will you have plenty of shopping options,
you can also walk directly to Namba Metro station in 10mins.
Keep going past the Metro toward Nankai Namba station and you will find the Namba Parks shopping mall.
With more than 200 stores, retaurants, cafes, movie theatres and public areas.
The streets have a surprisingly calm atmosphere.
As well as many large commercial facilities, Minatomachi is lined with high-rise condominiums.
Motomachi Central Park is located right in the heart of this area.
While it’s only a small park, it is still nice to see an island of natural space in this downtown area♪
What would Naniwa-ku be without Sakuragawa!
Convenient and only a short bike ride from Namba
Just blocks to the north and you will find Osaka’s trendsetting home, Horie.
No shortage of options for shopping and dining here.
Tons of restaurants located near sakuragawa station.
Supermarkets right next to the station for those who to prefer to dine at home too!!
If we are making comparisons, this is a safe neighbourhood as far as Naniwa-ku goes.

Great spot for those who want the convenience without the price tag!
