Beautiful shopping street

Similar to the Ginza area of Tokyo, and similar to Bond St or Rodeo Drive. A long, wide and attractive avenue of designer brands. A pleasant walk

Shops are average but way too many people... not really a good shopping experience. Can skip if you don't have a lot of time.

Shop, shop, shop. Shop till you drop. We don't shop, so there is not much to tell you. Except: explore the side streets. Some interesting cafes and restaurants. Look up, because a lot of them are not on street level.

Good area to shop AND eat! You'll never finish this area in a day... we spent 2 days & still so much to see & do. Raining? No worries, the streets have roofs so you can roam around without getting wet. A must go to place when in Osaka.

I don't recall anything special going on here but this place surely has a lot of shops for shopping, restaurant, entertainment hubs etc.

This area is simply filled wall to wall with shopping, from the small shop to the name brand you can find it here. On all of the small side streets there are hundreds of places to eat. Great place to spend half a day or longer.

one stop for all food and shopping related activities. If you can't handle big crowds though, this is not for you. We did go late on a Monday night and it was empty

This is so westernized so if you are looking for a cultural experience don't even bother stopping here.

This shopping area is pretty much situated like a super long street with shops on both sides. With the crazy amount of tourists and slow walkers, it gets very packed feeling like a can of sardines. The area is overrated, better can be found elsewhere.
