Half day Osaka shopping - any advice? 2008/12/20 15:37
I will be staying about 6 hours in Osaka next week. Can anyone tell me where is a good place to go shopping? Mainly cosmetics and clothes, no electronics. It cannot be too far from the Kansai airport as I have to come back there.

I was reading about Rinku Town on the internet but I'm a bit put off by the "Premium Outlet" name. I don't want to spend a fortune on designer brands. Bargain shopping would be great (especially with the recent high cost of Yen).

Can anyone recommend a good spot?

Minami Namba is a bit less expensive than Kita Umeda (except for big department stores they have similar prices. A cheaper area is the Tenjinbashi shopping street.
Nearest Stations : Subway Tenjinbashi 6-chome, Ogimachi, or Minami-morimachi Station. OR JR Tenma or Osaka Tenmangu Station. OR Tenjinbashi 6-chome Station of Hankyu

I agree, Tenjimbashi is cheaper.But for selection Shinsaibashi or Namba is better.
