A MUST GO place for those who love shopping!! This place, is literally the longest stretch of shops I've ever been to.. at the end of the day, i had to go back to the hotel not because of being tired, but because i don't any more extra hands to add on any shopping bags!! LOL =P..

I dont know where Namba, shinsaibashi and dotomburi stopped and started. Interesting shopping places. Its like Vegas- with the lights and pachinko slots everywhere! Mishmash of restaurants, retail, drugstore, entertainment. Cant decide! Then try them all.

This area is a shopping paradise . It is mostly covered area , so on a rainy day, good way to spend your time. Has both high end branded shops aplenty along with small shops selling slightly lesser costing merchandise. You can spend anywhere form 2-5 hrs depending on how muh of a shopaholic you are.

Shinsaibashi is a great area for shopping and eating, there are a vast number of options, including Japanese and non-Japanese. It is an easy location from which to get around Osaka.

nice shopping area. prices aren't high and there's lots of variety. take advantage of tax free shops there and u can save some precious $$$ for more shopping. clothes are more for the trendy teens or young working class. there r plenty of cafes along the way if u need to take a short break

I wish I discovered this area earlier while we were in Osaka - it is the only place you need to be at for fashion shopping! It's a looooooong street of shops after shops - you'll never get bored ;) I wish I had set aside a whole day for Shinsaibashi, one evening wasn't enough!

I love walking through this undercover mall there are miles of shops and you can find cheap to very expensive stuff along this strip. I love walking along here and just walking with the 10s of thousands of people :)
