  • Very good shopping street. If there is a need to buy a long gift there are a lot of choices here, and the store is also good to go to the price is not expensive. Like this, the light will not be too heavy. The mascot of the store is also very lovely oh ~

  • Be sure to come early, the market time is only in the morning to the afternoon, the evening when most of the shops have been concerned, this street has delicious pineapple and all kinds of delicious snacks, and can do the washing of the voice of the visit, it is really fun, because it is the relationship between the grandmother, so the pace of walking with a walk, Very good for you to enjoy the duck of this nest.

  • Less touristy place. Visited the place at night and the shops that are opened are largely eatery, convenient store, meat and fruit shop and cafes. Occasionally, one might bump into a mobile shop selling roasted sweet potato. A nice place for a quiet evening walk after dinner.
  • What a magical place! If you want to be with the locals, this is the place! Eat, drink, shop, pray! It has it all!!!!
  • A good shopping area for persons aged 50 and above. The shops mainly sell clothes cater to seniors, tea shop, seaweed preserved shops.
  • I thought this place is known to be Harajuju for elderly but I didn't find it quite so. Many locals, young people and tourists were walking, browsing, and shopping. There are many soba restaurants, Japanese confectionary shops, and cloth stores. One of the bigger strip malls you can find in Tokyo.
  • Quiet and informal street. Good food
