A good mix of touristy and local shops. Good to combine with a visit to the nearby famous Buddhist temple to stop here for a meal.

It's a good place for shopping different types of goods, like traditional Japanese clothing, shoes, beauty products, 100 Yen shop, etc. Also there are some cafes, restaurants and food stalls for selling tasty food, like fried chicken wings, udon and Japanese food.

You can walk all the way to Osu from Sakae after spending big bucks on luxury items. There are fewer chain stores here (still some) and more homely little shops run by older people. There is one supermarket which is the cheapest we've seen in...More

Seriously, I cannot understand why this was even mentioned by my guidebook. It's just a long covered arcade of shops, selling quite ordinary things like shoes, phone casings, snacks and backpacks. Among them are a few cafes and restaurants, but again nothing outstanding. It does...More

If you get out at the Kamimaezu station, take exit 9, that will put you two blocks away from the shopping area. Lots to eat, lots to shop. Plenty of clothing store, but lots of others too. Kind of disappointed that there is very few...More

I went in August . Our hotel was next to Osu shopping street. During a weekday we decided to have an early night and walked thru around 8. A noticeable number of shops were closed around then.
