A great place to shop like and with the locals. A massive variety of shops where you can buy anything you will ever need. And more importantly at a good price. The shopping street is also easily accessed by public transport

This is where the locals go and there are good deals to be had. I love the crepe hawker near Omigata stn. Tuck into a small shop and be pleasantly surprised. Experience Osaka like Osakan without having to go too far afield.

I will correct a little. Because there are many Japanese who go to "Hatsumode(New Year's prayer)" in Osaka Tenmangu shrine, there are also restaurants and souvenir shops opened since 1Jan.
