Great people and goods! We spent a day at the Shinsaibashi and got a lot of great clothes and goods :P A lot of cafe for you to rest a bit before you go on shopping. Do not miss it if you are a shopaholic like us!

Close to Dotonbori, another crazy busy street, with food, lights, and shops. Similar to Takeshita Dori in Shibuya, Tokyo. Loved it, will definitely go again next time we're in Osaka!
