3 way access, JR Loopline, Kintetsu line, and Osaka Metro Sennichimae Line here.
Direct trains to Namba, Umeda, and Tennoji, great for commuting anywhere in Osaka.
Plenty of storefronts line the mainstreet in front of the station. High foot-traffic area.
From the main street you can also access the “back alley” -esque Tsuruhashi arcade.
The arcade is a little narow, so bicycles are not permitted (???)
Most of the clothing stores sell womens clothes, more suited to an older generation?。
This store specializes in kimchi and is super popular!
There are more stores selling kimchi, and fresh seafood,
as well as specialty items like “tonsoku” (pigs feet).
