If you get tired of being in the crowds in Umeda, Namba, Tenjinbashisuji shopping street is the place for you.

Thisis the longest covered arcade in Japan. Beginning at the Tenmangu shrine near the city’s Minami-morimachi Station, this shotengai ends 2.6 km away at T
enjinbashisuji 6-chome Station.
TEN HOSTEL OSAKA is located right next to this street!

 

From stores selling food products, prepared meals, general merchandise, and clothes to inexpensive restaurants and well-established teahouses, more than 600 various establishments can be found here. Indeed, it is a shopping arcade that the local residents cannot do without. It’s even hard to imagine that this street is only one stop away from Umeda area.  
Back in the old days, stores began appearing one after another along the path leading to the Osaka Tenmangu (shrine) and this area turned into a shrine town which is said to be the beginning of the Tenjinbashisuji Shotengai. 
With many popular restaurants always crowded with people, you can also enjoy many of Osaka’s specialties such as Okonomiyaki (pan-fried dish with various ingredients) and Takoyaki (octopus balls).

Every July, many people come to one of Japan’s three most famous festivals held here called the Tenjin Matsuri Festival where they enjoy watching the parade of floats and miniature shrines and checking out the food stalls selling a variety of edible delights.
