About Namba

Osaka is the capital of Osaka Prefecture and one of Kansai's most beautiful cities. During night time, the illuminated billboards and skyscrapers light up the city. Places include Namba, Osaka's "South" center, an entertainment and shopping district, as well as Dotonbori canal, a major tourist attraction that's lit by hundreds of neon lights. Last but not least, the area around Umeda and Osaka train stations.
