Great, great place to shop and eat! And with all the stuff you can buy: chocolates, everything for 100 Yen, etc... you will need luggage with wheels to carry them all!! Be sure you have lots of time to spare in this place!

Nothing much other than some shops along the covered walkway. You can skip it if you have limited time in Osaka.

It's a long street which runs a few kilometers I think. But a lot of variety to shop around. If you are in Osaka, it's a must to visit.

The shopping strip goes for block after block after block, it's a great way to spend a day or an afternoon, mixing with the crowd, enjoying the street food & window shopping if none of the actual shopping appeals to you. Free wi-fi while you shop is convenient but the proliferation of international chains like H&M, Zara etc detract slightly... More

Has all the hip international clothing brands like H&M, Forever 21, Zara, Bershka and the like. There are also good Japanese brands like GU and Daiso for cheap finds. Lots of food options as well. A really long shopping strip to shop till you drop.

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.
