High temptation area for the shopaholics! Husbands/boyfriends beware. :)

The streets are lined up with restaurants and shops (Uniqlo, G.U, Daimaru, D&G, Disney Store, Nike, LV, Channel, Lush, etc.). A shopping heaven in a small alley. The crowd can... read more

A crowded downtown Osaka busiest, pull in lots of restaurants, it also focuses very much shopping traveler. True meaning of shopping paradise for everyone, plenty of products and services of Japan can be found here. Prices are not cheap but very good quality goods.

Love the shopping atmosphere of Shinsaibashi. Though shop-a-holics can spend an entire day looking at all the shops, even normal visitors would enjoy walking under the roofed lane of shinsaibashi. Crowded? Yes but that's part of the experience. You can grab food (Pablos, Crepes, Green Tea, etc) while walking. There are several Tax-free shops that people seem to get ga-ga... More

Very crowded neon lit shopping and eating experience. Safe to walk at any time of the day or night. Unlike London with numerous gangs of pickpockets.

Whilst most people traverse the infamous covered Shinsaibashi, there are parallel and perpendicular streets that offer interesting eateries! Check them out too (especially closer to the Glico sign).

Place is full of smaller shops with one major dept store. The shops are located in one long corridor which is nice and not confusing like many other shopping areas

Just another crazy and busy place in Osaka. Anything you want is somewhere along this road. It also connects to Amemura. On the weekends it is so busy, but enjoyable.
