Welcome to the Nansan Dori Shotengai Web site !

IntroductionNansan Dori Shotengai


The shotengai (local shop-owner’s) association, which was founded in the 1950s, marked its 60th anniversary in 2010.
The association has more than 100 members and follows a path bridging Namba Station to Nipponbashi Shotengai in the Minami area.

The shotengai developed with a focus on business and home furniture, but now it has a variety of stores ranging from restaurants to mobile phone shops.
It is a convenient shotengai which anyone who walks from Shinsaibashi / Dotonbori to Nipponbashi / Tsutenkaku in the Minami area will pass through.
The shotengai has teamed up with the Minami City Development Network and is working on the revitalization of the Minami area.
We hope you visit the Nansan Dori Shotengai !
