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

In the center of Osaka, there is shopping district full of colors, sounds, people and things to see or buy... the keyword is: bizarre! This endless walk is a great idea for an easy tour or a nice discovery.

- There are a lot of shopping options (low to high end/local and international brands/souvenirs to everyday goods) that appeal to both tourists and locals. - Should the need for a break from the shopping arise, there are also eateries and karaoke. - It has a lively atmosphere with the lights, noise, and crowd. - It's a covered street, so...

I've spend a late afternoon there because it was raining. It was crowded and noisy and colourful and the best thing there was that I bought some great home made ice-cream from a Turk born in Istanbul and took many photos ....but nothing spectacular

Loads of shops to have a look round! This place is massive! You will find loads of restaurants and shops that are locally run and big chains. You can find some great bargains along here. Easy to walk to from Dotonbori as they all kind of link.

This area is famous for their covered shopping area. It stretches for longer than I care to remember walking and I enjoyed every step of the way. Off the beaten path you will find dozens and dozens of individual family owned restaurants and shops. You can also find the famous "love hotels" from the posh to the somewhat … Adventurous.

Every time I go to Shinsaibashi, I found new excitement. This time I found good and cheap stationery shop at the end of Shinsaibashi. Looking forward to my next visit.

There is a very long covered shopping street. Its a must see in Osaka. There are not only tourists, but many local Japanese shop in the street. There are also many restaurants and bars. The original building for Daimaru Dept Store is there.

The area gives you kind of a market experience. Located on a covered street you can shop for everything you like. Most shops offer duty free shopping if you show your passport.
