Great shopping and close by to Dotonbori. Check out 3 Coins, UniQlo, GU and MUJI for great and affordable clothes and to take advantage of tax free shopping, but be aware that if you're tall or large you may not find clothes that fit. I'm a north american M or L, but a Japanese XL.

Amazing place for shopping and people watching. You literally can find anything in Shinsaibashi and some shops offer a good bargain.

Good place for shopping tax free, a bit too crowded but worth visiting in my opinion. Most shops sell Japanese cosmetics and food.

Shinsaibashi is the only reason I travel to Osaka! The shopping is great with many small shops, and plenty of food choices to choose from, and it is next to many of the major attractions like Dotonbori

You can find a lot of different kinds of shops ranging from big brand names like Louis Vuitton to dollar stores like Daiso. There's a variety of restaurants to choose from as well. The shopping arcade is covered so it's great on a rainy day but can be very crowed. There's also a lot of nightlife such as host/hostess bars.

People say if you travel to Osaka, this is a place you must visit or you cannot tell others you've been to Osaka. However maybe my son and I are not very devoted to shopping, we enjoyed our time more on trying some snacks like iced bar, cheese tarts while shopping around. My son loves all the toy chest crane...

This 600m shopping street is full of diverse range of shops from clothing, food and traditional items. Close to other interesting tourist spots like Dontonburi and Amerikamura.

I couldn't recall how many times we went back to this area during our stay in Osaka. This was despite the myriads of people we encountered each time we went back. There was also something about the place that made one feel alive. So much activity. But of course, there was also really so much shopping to do (at least,... More
