Kintetsu Department Store

This mall is situated in the Tennoji district. It sells items like clothing, food, cosmetics, accessories, electrical appliances, bedlinen and furniture. Among international top brands, there are also traditional Japanese items, kimonos and ceramics. On the ninth floor Kintetsu has an art gallery which hosts exhibitions and art events.


Osaka’s shopping areas can be divided into four districts: Umeda, Namba, Shinsai-bashi and Tennoji. Umeda has some of the city’s largest department stores. Namba, also known as Minami, has the best food culture. Shinsia-bashi is arguably the main shopping area, where you will also find the popular Amerika-mura, a district with many American style shops. This is the place where many young Japanese come to check out the latest trends or just “hang out”. Look out for the tell-tale Statue of Liberty. At the Tennoji district you will find both priceless antiques and contemporary fashion.
