“Great area to explore”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

This is a must see area in Osaka. There are plenty of areas to eat, shop and explore. The main shopping walkway is undercover and many side streets intersect this which are studded with great shopping and eating locations.

“An interesting shopping area.”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

All types of shops in one area with a river at one end that you can take boat rides on. Very good eating places around the whole district. From cheap to expensive, there is something for everyone.

“Heart of the action”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

Busy in the quirky but fun Japanese way. Loads of eating places. Shops galore. Colourful. Great Xmas lighting. Great Kissaten(tea shop) next to Daimaru in covered shopping arcade about two shops from Longchamp. No smoking area is upstairs. Selection of teas including gyokoro, sencha and nice bean based nibblies. Quiet and peaceful.

“Shopping haven for shopaholics!”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

We spent about 3hrs there. With 4 young kids in tow, it couldn't have been possible if our husbands hadn't helped out. They sat and chilled at Mister Donut where they served the best donuts i've ever tasted. Go into the right shops and you could get clothes, bags and shoes at great bargain prices.

This place is full of restaurants, hotels, night clubs, cafes and bars. Which makes it a perfect place for night life for a dine out or to drink with your friends.
