Midosuji Street, Osaka

3.5
#3 of 8 in Neighborhoods in Osaka
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. Plan to visit Midosuji Street and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Osaka attractions using our Osaka online route planner .

  • Central Avenue, with shops of the most famous brands and already in November, seems to be that Japan has reached the Christmas.

  • This year also started in earnest Midosuji illumination. At regular intervals on both sides of the Mido, traffic separation zone on both sides are decorated with lights of different colors. From the honcho over Namba, beautiful, will enliven the Christmas mood. West entrance honcho Senba Center building No. 9 and no. 10 on the East side entrance there are locations for photo shoots, so please try up ground from Midosuji Line Honmachi station exit 1 of Namba side!

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.
