We visited the area, based on some reviews from other visitors. We were a bit disappointed. We guess that the place is comfortable when it rains but other than that we found most shops boring as they belonged to international chains and very few original, local shops. So as long as the weather is fine you are better of exploring... More

Another shopping area in osaka, with a good combination of restaurants, local indie store, affordable shops and high street shopping mall. (Daimaru shopping mall in centre of this area) Definitely worth visiting if you like shopping, but then again there are so many similar places in osaka. Best place to go if you like Japanese cosmetics.

An excellent place to feel Japanese culture, latest fashion, music & Osaka food + shopping heaven. A trendy place in the Kansai region. Always crowded and I love the crowd when I was there. Almost a routine place for me to visit on weekend during my stay in Osaka for 1.5 years.

Almost the signature landmark you have to go as a tourist, offering you almost everything from shopping, dining to gaming. The crowded street made you feel like a tourist, and you will always be amazed by the Glico illuminated billboard, the excited crowd and the different local restaurants. Keeping an open mind for fun and local things then you will... More

They have from your branded stores like Sanrio Gallery up to awesome finds like the cute and trendy kimono that I bought from the Baby Doll boutique! There's also yummy snacks and... More

Lots of restaurant and street food, looks for the long queue restaurant or stall which is definitely selling the best one. Tried the Pablo cheesecake and we liked it so much then came back the next day for 2nd buy. Its so delicious and must try.
