Lovely place. Best place to visit is at night the lights in the area really stands out. Amazing area to eat and shop you can easly get lost in the maze of stores and food. Try to get in early due to the large crowd but its worth it.

Things are nice through the day but at night it got very seedy very fast but only in specific strips where you start seeing dodgy characters.

Will leave you alone but watch out for your valuables

The area is so lively at night, lots to see, shop and eat. The area is so crowded, lots of lights and fun.

Must see place. Visit of Osaka is incomplete without this. Shopping, eating, drinking and enjoying view at evening or night is great here.

This is a must visit area when visiting Osaka, with the best nightlife, restaurants and shopping. The best vantage point from which to see it is via the river cruise.
