“The Shopping Arcade - a good place to hide from rain”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

I've spend a late afternoon there because it was raining.
It was crowded and noisy and colourful and the best thing there was that I bought some great home made ice-cream from a Turk born in Istanbul and took many photos ....but nothing spectacular

“Shoppers Heven!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

Loads of shops to have a look round! This place is massive! You will find loads of restaurants and shops that are locally run and big chains. You can find some great bargains along here. Easy to walk to from Dotonbori as they all kind of link.

“A remarkably fun shopping experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

This area is famous for their covered shopping area. It stretches for longer than I care to remember walking and I enjoyed every step of the way. Off the beaten path you will find dozens and dozens of individual family owned restaurants and shops. You can also find the famous "love hotels" from the posh to the somewhat … Adventurous.

Every time I go to Shinsaibashi, I found new excitement. This time I found good and cheap stationery shop at the end of Shinsaibashi.

Looking forward to my next visit.
