Shinsaibashi (心斎橋) is one of my favourite shopping districts in Osaka.
For my last two trips to Osaka, my accomodations were within walking distance to this shopping heaven.
Shinsaibashi is a street of stores (商店街) running from north to south in the Namba area of Osaka, parallel to the main street/subway line, Midousuji. There is a variety of shops that will satisfy everybody's shopping desire. Whether or not you have a big budget for shopping, you are bound to find something that fits your price range. My favourite shops found on this street were Samantha Thavasa, Collect point, and of course, the Disney Store.

I took quite a lot of pictures of Doutonbori, 'cause the shops all look really interesting and colourful :D
It looks especially spectacular at night when all the billboards light up.
