OSAKA STATION CITY, Osaka

4.0
#4 of 71 in Shopping in Osaka
After undergoing extensive renovations, OSAKA STATION CITY has emerged as a town-sized commercial complex and one of Japan's most highly regarded stations. Across the two flanking high-rise buildings, you have hundreds of high-fashion and specialty stores, along with a hotel, a variety of restaurants, a department store, and a multiplex cinema. In addition to shopping and entertainment, the facility also affords spaces for relaxation: journey to the top of the North Gate building to explore a picturesque roof garden and take in panoramic views of the city. Pause for a moment on the connecting bridge between the two buildings to watch the comings and goings of the trains below.

  • This time to Osaka station, not to take Jr, but to see the light of the impact of this year's lighting, the result is a bit disappointing, because there is nothing special, unless there is a way to go shopping, or really do not have to ride the car, the land is good, but to take a large section of the road will be to the air in the square this ...

  • Admire the meticulous design of the Japanese, combine the train station with the commercial, the office, the public active space, and so on, through the ingenious action of the space plan, each go to a place will have a different surprise, walk for a long time will not feel tired. In particular, the five-floor space, the ten-floor open air field, and the higher floor of the sky Farm, are worth the time to stay stationed full. Go to Osaka to be a part of this, even if pure shopping will be filled with fun.

  • Getting a quick bite to eat is easy from Pie Face which is an Australian meat pie shop/cafe. There are also fruit tarts available. Very delicious. It can be accessed from the Eki Marche mall entrance which is to the left of the central gates at Osaka station. Open from 9 a.m - 10 p.m.
  • Well marked station. Easy to find trains and purchase tickets. Lots of shopping and restaurants in connected buildings.
  • 哩個車站好大,最頂果層,有個廣場幾值得去,我哋聖誕期間去佢叫時空廣場,佈滿燈飾好靚。 另外附近好多Shopping mall, 好多名店, 一不小心就會大出血, 另外地方有好多各式各樣嘅日本美食手信, 部分可以試食, 唔買都試下, 退稅位於B2 層, 好方便。
  • I was in awe with the men's bathroom never seen a men's bathroom this clean and even a baby holder if you got a kid this is unheard of in the US. Oh and heated toilet seats is normal here.
  • Osaka Station City Is the main railway station in Osaka, within the Kita-ku district. This is however not the shinkansen (bullet train) station, which stops just one stop to the north. This station is one of the largest complex I’ve ever seen of a train station, linking underground, regional trains, buses and even metro into a station that’s surrounded by all sides by shopping centers and departmental stores. I got lost just walking around this station and the surrounding North and South Gate Buildings. There are dizzying amounts of buildings around Osaka Station that are giant shopping malls and office blocks. One of them, the Umekita, just next to North Gate has a large selection of restaurants at its dining floor. It was raining that day so had the opportunity to try on these. Not cheap though, and I definitely prefer the more gritty style of street food or Izakaya. Despite that, the food's still delicious.

Where to stay in Osaka

The majority of Osaka's moderate and expensive accommodations concentrate in the districts of Umeda, Kyobashi, Namba, and Shin-Osaka. Base your stay in or near Minami neighborhood for proximity to a wide selection of shopping and dining options. For quick access to long-distance transportation to other cities and areas, look for hotels in Kita district. Many backpackers prefer the budget options in the Tennoji area, where the quality of rooms and prices vary wildly--call or check websites of specific establishments before you make reservations.
