Namba/Dotonbori is the main nightlife area of Osaka. A lot of interesting characters here and many drinking establishments to visit. Would recommend.

There are rows and rows of shops. It is very close to dotonbori. You can spend entire afternoon shopping here and proceed to dotonbori for delicacies after that
