The most famously known shopping street in West Japan “Shinsaibashi-suji Shotengai”
Shinsaibashi-Suji Shopping Street, which runs east to Mido-Suji Avenue, is the best-known shopping area in Osaka, and an enduring symbol of the city. With a history of 380 years, it was already an established shopping area in the Edo Period. Shops of all kinds and for all ages line the street, a roofed arcade 600 meters long. There are traditional kimono tailors, western clothing and footwear retailers, restaurants and fast food outlets, jewelers, and boutiques featuring the latest fashion. It's great to take a casual stroll through the Shinsaibashi area. Many people enjoy window-shopping and savoring the food along the way.
