NAGOYA OSU Walk around a "deep spot"

The Osu shopping area located directly south of the Sakae area is an exciting downtown area centering around the "Osu Kannon". With a tightly packed assortment of all kinds of cultures, including fashion, entertainment, and the "otaku" culture, this area even played a part in sparking the maid cafe and antique clothing booms. To the east of the Osu Kannon, three streets called Monzenmachi Dori Street, Uramonzenmachi Dori Street, and Kitashintenchi Dori Street stretch to the north and south, and fun shops fill the smaller side streets as well.
 
And many different types of shoppers frequent this area as well. For women seeking one-of-a-kind fashion items, popular spots include "2VD", a shop that carries unique clothing items and accessories made by renovating European used clothing, and "Gymno Pedie", a shop which carries original items and is also popular among people involved in the apparel industry as well. Also popular are "M's Melody", a shop where staff members dressed in maid costumes greet customers by saying "Welcome home, master" (okaeri nasai mase, go shujin sama), and "Daiichi Ameyoko Biru" (Ameyoko Building #1), which carries an intense selection of computer related electronics. And if you want to check out inexpensive high-quality items, visit the popular "Komehyo", a large scale used product center that will buy and sell in any genre, including everything from brand bags and antique clothing to musical instruments. Also, the Osu Kannon area hosts an antique market from 5:00 am to 4:00 pm on the 18th and 28th of every month, drawing exuberant crowds of treasure searchers.

NAGOYA MEIEKI Enjoy high rise buildings and department stores

Meieki area is the talk of the town with its recent up-cropping of high rise buildings. Featuring everything including gourmet foods, fashion, and culture, this is becoming very popular as a Nagoya's place to be. It also has the best terminal station in the Tokai area making access incredibly convenient.

A Meieki landmark, "MIDLAND SQUARE" features large scale movie theater entertainment and high quality restaurants in addition to a strong lineup of top line brands like Louis Vuitton, Loewe, and Chloe. "JR Central Towers", which is directly connected to the JR station, is home to "Takashimaya", a department store that features fashion popular among young people as well as a large scale bookstore and record shop. Hotels, restaurants, offices are also all directly connected, and the center itself is like a three dimensional version of a standalone urban downtown hub. The Nagoya Lucent Tower is amazing in its lineup of restaurants, including authentic Italian and Chinese cuisine. This is perfect when you want to enjoy a slightly higher level of fare.
