Lots of homewares - heaven for those who love to cook

Similar to Kappabashi in Tokyo but easier to wander around. If you like the Japanese ceramics and knives, there are plenty of shops to look and buy.

This is a go-to place if you like kitchenware. Plates, cups, saucers, chopsticks, pots and pans, everything you can think of from knives to takoyaki pans to mortars and pestles are on sale here. There's even fine china - we bought a Noritake tea set for a little less than ¥2300. Take time to browse from shop to shop, especially... More

The equivalent of Kappabashi-Dorinin Tokyo. Definitely a 'must-see' at the end of Shinsaibashisuji area. The stores are smaller and more towards locals, and most of them specialized on kitchen items. After or before going to Dotombori, just walk towards this area so you can have a more authentic experience.

The place to go for professional Japanese knives....it's a chef's heaven! Also lots of ceramics, though the quality is on the rougher side compared to those in department stores. But a great place to visit if you're in to kitchenware.

It's an interesting place but there is not enough variety in the kitchen ware being offered. The Tokyo Kitchen Street is more complete. But if you are interested in cooking, this will be an interesting place to see.

Super bright, super crowded, super shopping ambience. Long shopping street filled with all kinds of shops. You could easily spend the entire day here exploring every shops and every branching alleyways.

If cooking is an important interest for you this is a 'must visit' location. The eclectic mix of cooking and dining ware is absolutely fascinating. You can buy mixers from the hand held variety to the size of a concrete mixer and there is a huge range of beautiful porcelain and wooden dishes and bowls for both food preparation and... More

We were only in Osaka for a day and since we had to post something at Namba Station we decided to wander over (2-3 minute walk away). It's an indoor arcade with all manner of kitchenware shops. The prices were very reasonable and it wasn't at all touristy. If you love kitchenware and homeware, definitely consider visiting for 1-2 hours.... More

Walked passed here on the way to the electrical part of the town and eat an interesting arcade with ceramics and all the kitchen appliances and utensils. There's professional as well as domestic gadgets. Seems like wholesalers too. There's also other traditional Japanese items that don't seem so tourist tacky.

The Doguya-suji Arcade is a covered shopping street in the Namba area of Osaka near the famous Dotonbori area that specializes in cookware for both restaurant and home use. There are some specialty knife stores that sell every kind of knife you can think of, as well as samurai swords and scissors. Some will even stamp your name on the... More
