Shinsaibashi Tours

Osaka’s Shinsaibashi entertainment district has been a popular shopping destination for more than 350 years. How many shopping malls can say that? The 600-meter long shopping arcade (1968 feet) is a symbol of Osaka. Countless boutiques, specialty shops, department stores, cafes, and restaurants line either side of the strip. Shinsaibashi is a great place to shop and people-watch, as the services inside range from traditional kimono tailors to stores selling the latest fashion apparel. 

Shinsaibashi can be broken up into multiple separate areas, each popular with a unique crowds. An area off of Suomachi-suji Street has been nicknamed the “European Village” for its cobblestone sidewalks and brick buildings. The westernmost part of Sensaibashi is known as the “American Village” and is easily spotted by the artistic murals painted on the walls. Here you will find a concentration of hip Osaka teenagers and foreigners. Wandering around Sensaibashi can fill an entire day.

Practical Info

Shinsaibashi connects to Mido-suji Street, the main street in Osaka. To reach it by subway, take the Midosuji Line in Osaka to Shinsaibashi Station. From there, the shopping area is a two-minute walk. One of the most famous annual events in the area is the Mido-suji Parade held every fall. The parade features marching bands from all over the world.
