Anything you can think of to buy is here! Shinsaibashi has it all. Clothes, shoes,accessories,toys, books,souvenirs. And don't get me started on the food! So much food. Noisy, crowded, colorful Shinsaibashi is an experience you must have.

So many shops and such a long road. Is really good for pharmaceutical needs and also shopping for the ladies. There is also a wide range of restaurants and Pablo is situated herr where the famous cheese tart is known for and is definitely a must try. This place will definitely not disappoint you

Its a long stretch of walkway with shops left and right for a long long way. Try coming here on Jan 2nd (New Years Sale) and you'd get good bargains.

Enjoy shopping at Shinsaibashi shopping street. There are many tax duty free stores which selling tea, medicine, vitamins, beauty accessories, cosmetics until souvenirs. However, beware some stores set the price higher than other store in different neighborhood area.

Here you can find all kinds of shops and even massage parlors. Food is very good and you choose from Italian to French cuisines (apart from local, of course). You can access one of many small streets and have a drink at one of the small charming bars. You can buy hundreds of different unusual sweets at the KitKat shop... More

A fun and energetic shopping and dining district that is centered around a pedestrian friendly walkway. We stepped into a pachinko parlor and three-floor video arcade to check out the local youths and adults playing.
