    Osaka is dubbed “the nation’s kitchen” for its delicious food. In addition to food, it has endless shopping prospects, traditional culture, and vibrant nightlife. Lets create a visual travelogue and share what Osaka has to offer. Is fumitani and KIXman going to turn this into another food porn thread :eek:

    Shinsaibashi is the largest shopping area in Osaka where many boutiques and specialty shops are gathered. It offers a unique and vibrant shopping experience to many visitors and locals

    Entrance to JR Namba Station. "JR" is subtitled in hiragana just in case you don't know how to pronounce it.

    This is my old high school, on Nakanoshima next door to the Rihga Royal Hotel. It is now closed and may have been demolished by now (I haven't been back to check recently).
