Hopout #3 - Nakazakicho, Osaka
Welcome to our third HopOut. This time we will be visiting the extremely popular Nakazakicho area which is popular for its many cute cafes, shops and many other activities.
There is no specific route for this hopout. Honestly this area is more fun to explore without a map. But we’ll provide one anyway.
- Since Nakazakicho is a continuously changing area with shops and cafes coming and going we will occasionally update this page.
There are mutliple ways to get to Nakazakicho area but here are three:
A is Nakazakicho Station, exit the gate and you will be right on Nakazakicho doorstep.
Two is Umeda station, this will take about 5 to 10 minutes on foot, but I personally like this because you can pass through Chayamachi area which is also really nice.
And D is coming via Tenjinbashi6Chrome station. It’s a little further away than Umeda (about 10 min) on foot but you will pass through nice alleys with a mix of old and new houses, shops and bars.

Wonderland (English speaking barber)
A special entry to finish this post is Wonderland, a quaint little barbershop located on the edge of Nakazakicho.
The barbershop is situated in a lovely old Japanese building and has a lovely vintage retro interior. The barber is very friendly and speaks English.
