Where Dotonbori covered street arcade ends, Shinsaibashi starts. Dotonbori and Shinsaibashi is separated by a man-made canal with a road bridge across.
You can planned to cover both these within the same day. Best time to visit the place would be between 10:00am to 8:00pm for shopping and dinning after 8:00pm would be fine.
Our guides told me that this place is the cheapest place for shopping in Japan. I don't know much about this but there are many many shops along the 2 sides of the road. For shopping lover, this is your paradise. You may spent one day along this street.
I had only 2 hours at this place, not enough.
The Shinsaibashi district stretches north-south from Nagahori-dori street to Dotonbori Horikawa, with many long-established shops and department stores. This district is represented by the arcaded Shinsaibashi-suji Shopping Street. Under Nagahori-dori Street, Crysta Nagahori is an underground shopping center of light and water.
Its 'Waterfall Plaza' has a must-see 12 m-high glass ceiling on which water flows. Other attractions include the atmospheric European Street with a stone pavement and retrospective streetlights. American Village attracts many young people with about 3,000 young fashion boutiques and many clothes dealers.
