If you are not into shopping, I advise to not check this street in the evening on the weekend as its total hassle... way too many people in this never ending street. If, however you like shopping, good luck :)

We visited Shinsaibashi on a rainy Tuesday evening and it was still a crowded and lively area. Good thing that it was covered and out of the rain. It’s within walking distance of both Dotonburi and the Namba Walk.

You can find most of the famous Japanese brands here. There are drugstores and dessert parlours. My favourite is Pablo mini cheese tarts and their cheese ice cream. Don't miss a chance to stop by at DHC store to look for a new skincare in low price.

This isn't your ordinary mall. You feel the difference once you see it. It's outdoor type. There are Japanese brands (Uniqlo, Gu) and international ones (H&M, Berska among others). It's a must visit to all the tourists.

Shinsaibashi is very nice place to visit and dine. Visitors can have "Konamono" such as Takoyaki and Okonomiyaki these taste pretty awesome and quite reasonable. This is one of big culture in Japan!! You should try it!!
