Osu Shopping District

Mayu Suzuki

I love shopping in the Osu shopping district. This shopping arcade, with its 400-year history, is filled with the charm of Japanese culture.

Located just beside Osu Kannon, a Buddhist Temple in Central Nagoya, it is a flourishing entertainment and cultural centre for both locals and tourists. You’ll find over 1,200 businesses, ranging from long-standing establishments to trendy new stores.

Nibble on some rice crackers while you browse the streets, or dig in to local specialties such as fried chicken or one-coin pizza.

If you’re a fan of anime, why not drop by one of the many cosplay shops around? The area has been compared to the Akihabara District in Tokyo because of the shops that specialize in electronics or anime. By the way, this street is the venue of the World Cosplay Summit that’s usually held from the end of July through to early August every year.

日本文化の魅力がここ大須にはギュッと詰まっています。

日本三大観音の一つである大須観音から連なる、昔ながらの雰囲気が味わえる商店街があります。
お煎餅やういろう等のお土産を買うのも良し、名物のからあげやワンコインピザを食べ歩くも良し、
コスプレ衣装を扱うお店に立ち寄るも良し。

毎年7月下旬~8月上旬にかけて開催される世界コスプレサミットの会場にもなっているので、
夏に訪れればいつもと違った楽しみ方ができますよ。
