Tenjinbashi is possibly the longest shopping street in Japan stretching over 2.5 kilometers and it does take quite a while walking through the entire street, segregated into 6 zones.

Unlike Shisaibashi that is more "high end" and catered mainly to the tourists, this place is way "less crowded and noisy" as it's catering more to the locals. Very rarely, you will see a few foreign tourists walking past here. As such, the price of items here are generally lower be it product items or dinning at the restaurants or cafes.

Similarly to other shopping streets, shops are located on both sides of the street and they do offer lots of shopping choices, such as lifestyle items, fashion, bags, shoes, convenience and pharmacy stores, gaming arcades, toys, stationery, florist, food stalls, restaurants, cafes etc, all can be found here. You will have plenty of choices here.

You will experience very different things here than in other parts of Osaka, not to mention Tokyo or even Yokohama. People here are friendly and helpful and it's also a place where you can indulge and get a real taste of the Japanese culture and way of life.

It's quite a good shopping trip for us here as we ended up buying a lot of things and enjoyed our closed to 3.5 hrs spent here (including 30 mins for lunch).

Do take note that for some restaurants, taking videos or photos are not allowed and so please check with the staff if that can be done.

Highly recommended.

THe shopping place that stretches and stretches. lots of variety to see...and shop and the entrance has uniquely Japanese figures stuck on the wall. Might be a little cheaper than tokyo.... I think.

It appears that therw were few foreign tourists here whwn we visited. This mall is certainly popular among locals. It is quite a typical Japanese mall where all different kind of shops can be found. But what attracted me most are the restaurants towards the southern end and most appear to have grilled unagi on their menu. And most of all, the prices are inexpensive!!!
