Great shopping street. You can more or less buy anything you need there. We stayed nearby and visited everyday as there is so much nearby on the side streets f

“Good walk with the locals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

This is real life in Japan. You see so many locals and know you are in the middle of reality. Good variety of shops with lots of bargains during the winter season. A really good walk on a cool day.

“Freaking Amazing Shopping Alley”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

600m long shopping alley next to Dotonbori. So many to shop. From Drug Stores that sell toiletries; cosmetics; etc. to Souvenir Shops that sells local snacks. From Local Brands like Uniqlo/Daiso/3Coins to Int'l Brand like H&M. Daimaru Shopping Mall is also here! A must visit!

“prepare to shop, walk, shop and walk till you can't walk anymore”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

There are so many shops there and you can easliy shop for hours. I went to a shop called GU and their prices are low at great value. Jacket for like less than 1000yen on sale. There is a big department store Daimaru and you should visit the supermarket underground and check out the strawberries. They are so good....yummy
