Three minutes on foot from Namba station is a road filled to overflowing with specialty shops that are consistently packed with both domestic and overseas tourists, selling everything from food samples, lanterns, electric signs, dishes, food serving vessels, kitchenware and more.
The history of the area dates back to 1882, when stores selling old tools and other miscellaneous goods began lining the paths between the Hozenji and Shitenno-ji Temples and the Imamiya Ebisu Shrine.
An arcade was built in 1970, resulting in an expansion of the road to its present-day shopping street style. Osaka, known as "the nation's kitchen", remains a city where sushi chefs and restaurant culinary artists engage in competition with respect to the spirit and technique of their cooking—and this shopping street is filled with plentiful wares that are worthy of such professionals’ handiwork.
One of the shops has additionally earned the distinction of having the greatest the selection of goods nationwide for konamon (flour-based dishes in Osaka cuisine, such as takoyaki and okonomiyaki).
