Your list of things to see and do now includes Tsutenkaku Hondori Shopping Street, Keitaku-en Garden, Shinsaibashi-suji Shopping Street, and other attractions. There's lots more to do: explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle, take a stroll through Dotonbori, and go for a walk through Ukiyokoji Street.
