Shinsaibashi is famous for its Shinsaibashi-suji, the Shinsaibashi Shopping Arcade. Approximately 600m long, this arcade is unique as it combines chain retail stores and trendy boutiques with expensive department stores and top designer fashion labels.

Shinsaibashi Shopping Arcade is a shopping street with a very long history! This covered arcade, site of some of Osaka's historical bridges, has been around in some form for hundred of years, and is still one of the city's most popular and famous spots. Osaka is well known for its covered shopping streets, and the Shinsaibashi Shopping Arcade is well travelled by residents and visitors alike.
