Call it a shopping mecca in Osaka

  • Shopping

Shinsaibashi shopping street is one of the longest shopping streets in Japan. It is loaded with about two hundreds of shops and restaurants. There are many Japanese stores such as Sanrio Hello Kitty shop, UNIQLO clothing stores, Matsumoto Kiyoshi drug stores to name a few, as well as internationally recognized retails such as GUESS, Tommy Hilfiger, and ZARA. The Daimaru Osaka Shinsaibashi store and OPA store draw attention of visitors especially from Asian countries.

Hanging out in the Shinsaibashi area is a typical weekend plan for young people living in the Hanshin, Osaka to Kobe area. Nowadays, it has become more a tourists’ friendly place offering free public Wi-Fi and multilingual staff at duty free shops.

You will enjoy not only browsing through shops as well as taking pictures of iconic Dotonbori and Ebisubashi Bridge during daytime. There's a boat tour going down the Dotonbori river, which is another nice activity to participate.

At evening, signboards are lighted up, and the area gets even more vibrant. A lot of “izakaya” restaurant (a casual Japanese pub), night clubs and bars open till late.
Occasionally a street live will be played by local music band besides the deck of the Dotonbori river.

Overall, you would have a great time shopping with your family or your friends, or with your significant other in Shinsaibashisuji. Because as many as almost 140,000 visitors come visit here on both weekdays and weekends, it can be tiring to walk after a few hours, so be prepared for that. When you feel like escaping, you would not have trouble in looking for cafes, ice cream parlors and food stools to have a break.
