Why Daimaru Shinsaibashi is special ?
Massive neo-gothic style building designed by Vories. The main building has two stories underground and eight stories above ground. South building is one story underground and 8 stories above ground. There are about 20 shops along the streets nearby, too. Salon Du Gout Branche on the 2nd floor of the main building is luxurious with brand name items. Another Daimaru shop in Umeda, too.

Big shopping mall at the central area.It departs by south & north building.If you need tax refund,have to go to the north.I think this is an old building.But it keeps the good arrangement of all things.That't the japanese style.
I wasn't particularly enticed by the shopping at Daimaru but you have to check out the bottom floors for their range of food!Personally, I preferred the Daimaru at Umeda Station as opposed to the Shinsaibashi one but regardless, you have to check out the fresh scallop salads and sushi!You get to try a variety of things of great quality without over stuffing yourself!Not everything here is economical in terms of price but be assured that they are good!
Ok please don't come here because of its ranking. If you have never visited a Japanese style shopping mall then this place might seem specialActually literally all the major stores like isetan, Mitsukoshi, Hankyu, are all similarThe building is nice though with balconies within the storeTakashimaya and Hankyu stores are bigger
We used to have Daimaru stores in Singapore and I enjoyed shopping there. Daimaru Shinsaibashi is even better. There store has 3 buildings with many floors. The basement level of the main building is where they sell food and the staff greet you at every corner and at every turn, inviting you to check out the products. They sell all sorts of delicacies and goodies. The elevators are minded by ladies in elegant uniforms who greet you as you enter and exit the elevator. At times, it felt impolite not being able to understand or respond in Japanese so I just smiled and nodded. Department stores seem to love packaging, using lots of it and Daimaru is no different.
