This arcade built in 1970, is a long covered shopping street dedicated to selling all manner of kitchen ware and cooking utensils. This is where you should go if you are looking for reasonable prices, as many shops sells at wholesale prices. Knowing this street dubbed as “Kitchen Street” would not really prepare one for the number and volume of cookware, bake-ware and eating implements that is on sale. The choices available just for kitchen knives alone are impressive, ranging in size, length, quality and purpose. Many food professionals come here to buy quality equipment. They also have everything one could possible need to open a restaurant like tableware, lamps, restaurant signs, restaurant decor and more. Thus the range of products here are for the chefs and entrepreneur as well.
Some of the shops are over stuffed with goods while others are easier to walk around. If cooking and kitchenware is your thing, you will find something to like about this street. This shopping street connects to the main shopping street of Osaka, just away from Dotonbori and is a nice break from the hustle and bustle of the main street.
