Great place to get your souvenirs. It is very busy and a huge mix of people. Here you can get the more traditional Japanese gifts rather than tat. Can get very warm on a nice day as the streets very narrow.

Covered shopping area good for rainy days. Found some nice souvenir shops and there is Daiso on this street, where everything is 108 yen and not of bad quality either.

We searched for a meal place and a shopping, but we could not find any attractive shops other than that of 'Nara-pickles'.

Great for Pokemon Raids when the wife is shopping. A lot of food, gadgets, drinks and just great to walk when it is bad weather

Good street to enjoy less crowds and find a decent restaurant under some cover. Less shops but definitely worth popping into for lunch or dinner especially if it is raining.
