Must visit if you are in Tokyo.

Nice to take a walk and look at local stuff. There are many shops selling all sorts of things. There are also many restaurants in this place.

Totally jaw dropping when you see the crowds and their oohing and aahing from the lights and Running man and amount of shops galore there as well as the small okonomiyaki, takoyaki, ramen, sushi and countless other places to grab a bite..and don't forget the touristy crabeatery Kanidoraku.

Lots of shopping and food. But if you want the best local food, stay away from there! They're all meant for the tourists.

Too many stores to choose from, we only wish we had more time (days) to spend window shopping. We found a Disney store! :)

Best shopping street ever. It was bustling and crowded with people (and that is why i love this street). So many shops from the branded ones (uniqlo, h&m, f21) to unbranded. There are also so many japanese snacks you can try, located near dotonbori.

If you love shops this is the place for you. Some familiar staples like Zara, H & M, Desigual, Guess, Adidas, Forever 21 from what I recall, but many more Japanese shops. Taking Shinsaibashi underground station got us right in the middle of this shopping street. Spent 7 hours in the area and did not see the half of it.... More

My favorite shopping street in Osaka. It has everything you need. Can be very crowded during both weekends and weekdays, but is still worth walking through.
