Cutting-edge fashion, cute novelty items, goods of the highest luxury….Osaka provides shopaholics with an irresistible experience where there really is something for everyone. While it’s almost impossible to find a single street without shops selling beautifully crafted goods, there are some areas that are famous for being shopping destinations.
Osaka Station City has become the symbol of the Kita area. This entertainment quarter has four department stores, Grand Front Osaka, a large cinema complex and a giant appliance store. And being just a stone’s throw from Osaka Station, you can simply step off the train and start shopping.
One of Osaka’s major commercial hubs, Minami combines a number of distinct areas that each offer something unique. In one small area alone you can find the wide boulevard of Midosuji Street lined with luxury brands, the Horie neighborhood with unique boutiques and interior decorating shops and youthful America-mura (American Village) packed with street fashion. Even further south at Tennoji and Abeno, large and vibrant shopping malls have been built right beside the train stations for the easiest shop in, shop out experience.
Over time, Osaka has become famous for being the boisterous port town where merchants hawk their wares on the streets to passers by. This market atmosphere is alive and well and can be found at a number of shopping streets such as Tenjinbashisuji Shotengai, one of Japan’s longest shopping streets, and the unique Sennichimae Doguyasuji where you can find anything related to kitchens. Also not to be missed is Nipponbashi Denden Town, which specializes in electrical appliances. To help you get started, use our search tool or browse a list of shops below.
