not knowing our bearings, we walked the whole stretch, only to find out we have covered so much ground in osaka but this is really one stretch where the crowds never cease to stop and the food/fashion/shops never cease to end! Love it

One whole day is needed for this whole street!! The best place to shop in Osaka! Everything from well known japanese fashion stores like uniqlo, 100 yen shops, international fashion labels like H&M, Zara, Forever 21, Sanrio, Agnes B, Samantha Thavasa, to tons of drugstores, departmental stores for luxury products and lots of F&B for you to choose. Best place... More

Like - A lot of trendy Japanese stores here, including a major Sanrio store (Hello Kitty fans must visit). Dislike - very crowded on weekends (but in Japan, if it's not crowded, then what they sell must not be very popular or not be a very good deal).

I like shopping, but this place is not a place for shopping, so much as it is a place for observing the bustling pace of Osaka all around you. Its frenetic pace and energy can be tiring, and the stores are nice at one end and get progressively less exciting at the other. It's fun to see so much of... More

You would need a month to see it all, we only had one night. Just go and enjoy the atmosphere... if you like shopping and eating out, this is heaven.

Too many shops to buy food from. You will not be able to decide, tako ball, egg tart, okonomiyaki, crab, macaron, .... Too many choices, so ur stomach should be empty before u reach there. There are also shops to sell clothing and shoes but you can still find them in other places.

I left my boyfriend at our hotel and hit the town running, there are so many shops. High end and high street. I ended up going back with him because I couldn't let him miss all the fun
