Tenjinbashisuji Shopping Street

The longest shopping street in Osaka and all of Japan, Tenjinbashisuji stretches some 2.6km from north to south of the city, and is a must-visit for shopaholics and souvenir hunters. The arcade houses over 600 shops and stores, along with street food vendors' stalls, restaurants, pachinko parlors and more. Here you can buy everything from Manga comics to Japanese knife sets, local delicacies and teas, clothing, and more.


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.
