Easy to see the area by walking. Lots of stores, high and low end. Great eating places, again both high and low end. Summer time is very hot and humid keep hydrated and local people are very nice dont be afraid to ask questions or for directions.

A great place to experience the "large city japan" that me and my wife imagined. Shopping varies from great stores to tacky teen stores. Lots of clubs, karaoke bars, restaurants and game halls. Trying the local takoyaki (street food with octopus and ginger) is a must.

This is full of shops. The shopping is not really interesting in fact but it is nice to see the atmosphere.

The main shopping arcade is too commercialized with its bright lights and constant noise from vendors shouting out to potential customers walking by. After walking the full length of Shinsaibashi shopping arcade and other branches of covered shopping, I concluded that it's not for me. There are some reputable department stores mixed between other smaller stores. Uniqlo and H&M stores... More

So many shops in a covered alleyway type environment and the street goes on for ever. A mix of well known international chains like UniQlo, H&M, Zara's, Levis and local shops so a big variety of top end and cheaper shops and also department stores.

I terribly missing Japan and all those special places such as Shinsaibashi, walking along the streets overcrowded of people, admire all those extravagant shops and many restaurants is a wonderful feeling. Osaka is a fantastic city and thanks to these wonderful corners is one of the most beautiful in all Japan.

Blocks and blocks of covered shopping that stays open late. Sound too good to be true? Shinsaibashi has it all; big labels and small individual shops. My teenagers loved it. Something for everyone!

You can find almost whatever you want from this street. From Clothing to pharmacy to toys to food. For babies to adult, for male and female.
