Culture by day and glamour by night: Kita (north of Chuo Dori) is the place to come for the museums of Naka-no-shima, the city's deluxe department stores, and the chance to lose yourself (intentionally or not) in one of Japan's largest underground shopping labyrinths. At night take in the view from the Umeda Sky Building or the Ferris wheel at the HEP Five department store before you explore Osaka's upscale entertainment district, Kita-shinichi.
