Apart from the amazing shopping, there are cultural sites, world class entertainment places and also great street food found throughout the city. Just so you know, Osaka is also known as the Kitchen of Japan. Walking along this main street was an experience to remember as the covered walkways here stretches for over four kilometers. Can you imagine the amount of shops available here? Totally surreal and truly a woman's paradise. Then again, men would be pleased to know that there are male items available here too. Taking the subway here is a breeze as the ticket machines have dual language where English is one of them. Many of the directional signs are in English too.
