#5 of 8 in Neighborhoods in Osaka
Neighborhood Scenic Walking Area
The main street in Osaka, Midosuji Street serves as the heartbeat of the city. This 4 km (2.3 mi) long and 44 m (145 ft) wide, tree-lined boulevard offers classy shopping, chic cafes, top restaurants, department stores, five star hotels, and various recreation facilities. Three rows of ginkgo trees, which change colors over seasons, and 29 pieces by famous sculptors make this popular stroll enjoyable despite the city bustle. Dubbed the "Champs Elysees of the Orient," the well-lit street connects two major entertainment centers in the city and buzzes with people around the clock, attracting plenty of nighttime visitors. The street stretches from Namba to Umeda subway stations. Make Midosuji Street a part of your Osaka vacation plans using our Osaka trip itinerary planner.

Where to stay in Osaka

The majority of Osaka's moderate and expensive accommodations concentrate in the districts of Umeda, Kyobashi, Namba, and Shin-Osaka. Base your stay in or near Minami neighborhood for proximity to a wide selection of shopping and dining options. For quick access to long-distance transportation to other cities and areas, look for hotels in Kita district. Many backpackers prefer the budget options in the Tennoji area, where the quality of rooms and prices vary wildly--call or check websites of specific establishments before you make reservations.

  • nothing much is on the street or station itself but the shopping and food area are walking distance nearby  more »
  • Nothing really inspiring about this avenue. We walked along to get to other areas but not really family interesting. Major labels and brands line the street as you walk, could be anywhere in the world...  more »
  • The street is home to several high end brand names and shops. Its less busy than theshopping streets of Tokyo and therefore lends itself to better appreciation of the architectural display.  more »
