This part of Osaka is like Camden town in London. Narrow streets, designer and vintage shops, street food, pubs and crowd always everywhere. The most visible difference with Camden market is the lack of trash and trashcans. We lived nearby, so with a convenient walk we could reach out to these streets anytime. This is a must-see area in Osaka for designer handbag lovers.
it is the most busiest and popular place for both local and foreign shoppers. You may find luxurious brands in the department stores and mass consumer products on streets and underground shopping corridors. You may also find wide range of food there including many famous Osaka street foods.
I'd still prefer the Mongkok Night Market to be honest. The prices are ok especially when it comes to their shoes, super discounted prices and guaranteed original. Luxury brands in the area are all also on sale. Visit Bic Camera for electronics, Book Off for hard to find music CDs and Classic Video Games CD.
Shinsaibashi is full of narrow streets filled with shops and restaurants. It is best known shopping area in Osaka and an enduring symbol of the city. It is a must to spend your evening in Osaka exploring the equally bright and busy streets of Namba, Dotonbori and Shinsaibashi.
