Good to visit, bad to buy. Few restaurant serving average food with average price. Well, the scenery is nice, it is next to a port. Starbucks is available. Other than that, just take photographs with the building.

I guess it's too much to hope that these nice old red brick warehouses would be filled with anything other than tacky tourist shops. Alas. But still worth a visit, and some pretty funny tack to be had if you want to give a friend back home a giggle.

A nice collection of buildings on the waterfront, a 10 minute walk from the fish market, but barely worth it if you are not interested in touristy gift shops selling mostly the exact same things as most if the other touristy gift shops we had already seen.

These old warehouses are now full of chintzy shops with little or no reference to their history or original purpose. If you're out that way, maybe go by for a photo opportunity - otherwise avoid - they are a tourist trap

The red bricks warehouse buildings here offer not just great picture backgrounds but also great shopping and dinnung places for good 2-3 hours. We were here for the glass products and music boxes and found that this place is simply packed with attractions. 明治館 is a great place for people who admire the great craftmanships of glass and other products....

If you drive, you will find difficult to car park especially weekend and public holidays. In terms of shopping, pretty average close around 7pm, dining around 8-9pm... But there is a big supermarket, we saw lots of people going in. We concentrate to walk the shopping area instead.

The warehouse looked nice from outside, but the inside is just a tourist trap shopping centre. Nice location to take pretty pictures, but I probably wouldn't go back there.

The red brick warehouse district in Kanemori are, as the name suggests - old red brick warehouses by the sea which were built in 1907, I believe to house produce for trade at the time.
