Tenshinbashisuji Shotengai


"Where can I get Cheap and Nice Japanese souvenirs?"

We're often asked by our guests, and I recommend them to go to "Shinsaibashi-suji Shopping street".
There are many kinds of stores, restaurants there and most of them are cheaper than Kita(North of Osaka city.
We call this Shinsaibashi and Namba area "Minami".) It's also a tourist spot in Osaka, and there are a lot of people include tourists everyday.

However, if you're getting fed up with typical sightseeing, I recommend you to go to "Tenjinbashi-suji Shopping street."
It's the longest shopping street(2.6km) in Japan, and there are about 600 shops.
However, they're not for tourists. There are a lot of local people who look like coming to buy their ingredients for dinner.

I walked whole street the other day after a long time( I used to go there when I was a student), and I took hours!
Used book shops, furniture shops,Japanese candy shops, stationery shops,100 yen shops,music stores, boutiques, beauty salons, drugstore, antique shops, Japanese tea shops,flower shops..Even a gun shop!
Japanese, Itarian,Chinese etc. restaurants, Udon, Soba, Sushi, Cafe, First foods, Okonomiyaki,Crepe etc stalls..
You're never in a trouble when you get hungry, and you can have a massage when you tired.


I promise you'd look and feel normal Japanese life
though there aren't typical souvenirs shop.
