  • Motomachi shopping street was a big presence outdo third-Sannomiya Center Street until the 1970s. It is more and more to Center City customers siphoned off by the still seems continues that trend.  Same with prestigious companies continue to wane. That was once a thriving, from shopping street entrance of the lifeboat of the Daimaru Kobe shop indeed, quite many turnout from hundreds of meters away. But gradually increasing number of shops closed and walk to the Western half of the shopping area and at length from East to West (JR Kobe station side), has become "a typical shutter town" near the West entrance.  Where you feel the ups and downs of shopping so much? Motomachi shopping street shopping and dining just to go with the No. Is the center point of the market can't resist the move to learn, social learning. Once on his feet walking on the whole better. For future population decline and aging of Japan economy,--but this should point you feel what.
