I’d like to know if they are all for her or is she helping out three friends while they run off to buy onigiri and tea for the long, long train trip to someplace. Or are they new and she’s taking them home to the family. Questions questions questions.

More likely that the bags are filled to the brim with beauty products and baby supplies to be taken back to her native china. Doutonbori use to be a nice place now it's full of rude tourists cleaning out the drugstores and crowding the pavement

I’m in Osaka now (live in Tokyo) and agree. Overall tourism is great for the economy but some of these folks are out of hand.
