Namba SkyO Convention Hall and the Swissotel Nankai Osaka

Namba, representative of the Minami (“south”) area of Osaka city, is as an area representative of the spirit that fills all of Osaka. Namba features shopping from luxury brands to unique shops, as well as restaurants, cafes, theaters, hotels, and of course meeting facilities all packed together in the same area.

With many sightseeing spots, Namba is a bustling area. Especially after meetings, exhibitions, and other MICE events, it is incredibly easy to step out onto the neon-lit streets to see the famous Dotonbori, the Kuromon Ichiba market, and the lively Shin-Sekai while experiencing Osaka’s street food culture.

Namba SkyO Convention Hall

Just a short distance south of Namba is Tennoji, where visitors can find the historical Shitenno-ji Temple, constructed by Prince Shotoku in the 6th century AD, in contrast to the modern Abeno Harukas, the tallest building in Japan with a sweeping view of all of Osaka.

The City South Area is Osaka’s treasure box, available for anyone at anytime to enjoy the incredibly diverse options.
