If you’re looking to do some quick shopping or get a bite to eat in the Kita District of Osaka, Herbis is a good place to start. It’s a five-minute walk southwest of JR Osaka Station. Many upscale international brands have shops here, so it’s a good spot for some high-end shopping under one roof – you’ll find brands like Gucci and Tiffany here.
Unlike the shops, the restaurants are generally much more reasonable and you’ll find a good selection of Japanese and international cuisine. Finally, there’s a theatre and concert hall.
