“Diverse Shops at Namba Parks”

While I didn’t explore every corner of Namba Parks, I casually visited a few noticeable places. The first place I explored was a pet shop named “P2.”. Upon entering the building, the sound of birds caught my attention, leading me to discover parrots and other pets such as rabbits and fish. In Korea, it’s relatively rare to find pet shops of this scale within shopping malls, and I couldn’t help but think that Japan has a greater variety of specialized stores.

There are stores selling diverse vintage items similar to Village Vanguard and shops like “Loft” offering a range of lifestyle products. If you’re in Osaka for shopping, Namba Parks is a great place to explore.

One of the best aspects is its excellent accessibility. Connected to Namba Station, it’s easily and quickly accessible. Namba Station is linked to Takashimaya Department Store and various other shopping malls, including arcade shopping streets, making it an optimized place for shopping.
