Any idea which exit to go out of there and which way to turn? Thanks!

Ive not passed by in Nipponbashi lately so Im not sure about the daiso there.

If you are going to Shin Osaka,
using JR, take the East Exit then proceed to the West Gate, turn left all the way to the over pass. I think its about 10-15 minutes walk. I think you can see the Konami building, walk towards it and keep walking onwards until you reach the Kita Osaka Hospital. From there I think you can already see the Daiso. But are you living around that area?

There might be a Daiso or a 100yen shop nearer your place.

The shop at Shin-Osaka looks like this.

Michigan90,
Thanks for the photo of the Daiso at Shin-Osaka. That will help greatly. I am visitor, rather than resident. Limited time there, if you can translate the Japanese from the location page what is the address of the Daiso in Shin-Osaka, or which line is it on that page in the list? So I can show a taxi driver if necessary.
Thanks so much!

Susan

Susan,

Print the Google Map and show it to the taxi driver if you can. The shop is in "Showa Building" at that address.

Enjoy shopping.

Michigan90 and Samokan,
Thanks very much for all the detailed info. This will help me greatly!
Michigan90 did you graduate from U of M in 90? So you must know Ann Arbor too!

Actually, no, I have never been to Michigan. I studied in Oregon until 2003 though. A friend of mine graduated from U of M '06(?), so he knows Ann Arbor. Michigan 90 is the name of a ship crusing in Lake Biwa for 90 minutes. Students from Michigan are working in this ship because Shiga-ken has a sister state relationship with Michigan.

Photoguide.jp has a video on YouTube.

Thanks to all - 02-29-2008, 06:15 AM

Thanks to all who assisted in helping me find the location of the large Daiso store in Osaka. With the photos and maps provided to me, I was able to find the store fairly easily!

Also, in case anyone else would like to know, there is also a medium-sized (3 smaller floors) Daiso in Shisaibashi Suji near the subway station.

Also for anyone recommending reasonably priced accommodations for friends/family, the Comfort Hotel Shinsaibashi was excellent value at $63 a night for a single (full sized bed) with remarkable free wireless internet (the fastest I've seen in my trips to different countries, and even better than I get at home!) and a continental breakfast included in the price....and close to subway, shopping, food and not far from Dotonbori either.
