“Didn't live up to expectations”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

It was indeed a long street, so make sure you wear comfortable shoes. It didnt have anything unique and prices weren't cheap either. There are some good bakeries there however. Subway at either end so don't have to walk all the way back. Prob only worth it to say you walked down the longest shopping street

“Shopping!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

You just have to walk and look around and actually see it to believe the whole shopping district. There is nothing like it in Australia. My advice, get a big backpack to carry your shopping.....you WILL shop. You can't help yourself! And drinks lots of water. There are vending machines everywhere with cold bottled water.

“Shop and dine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

A great experience that no one should have missed.
The shops, the people, the sales person shouting out to attach tourist, it is all in the package of walking the street.
There are plenty places for food, from street food to all crab dinning.

“Definitely not a Shinsaibashi”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

We were a bit disappointed on our visit. Yes it is a very, very long shopping street but be prepared for small shops with merchandise targeted for locals. Lots of great places to eat and some second hand luxury good stores. If you have time worth fitting it in but if you're strapped for time I'd try Shinsaibashi instead.

“Get what the locals buy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Not necessary a must visit place, but you can shop with the locals. This also means that the snacks and cosmetics products are more cheaper here! We have a great time shopping at Tenjimbashisuji Shopping Street!
