Great old fashioned shopping area. Some of the major department stores have left the area but there are many street vendors and excellent restaurants. Try Strawberry Fields Restaurant. Also, if you want to try Pachinko this this the area for you.

Went there because some reviewers commented about the 'local feel' and it did give us that impression. Things were not tourist oriented and the price of things were cheaper than other areas. We scored some bargains which were 20-30 per cent lower than other places.

Many shops but I am attracted by the Yen100 shops and the food outlets, where there are many around. It was cold when we were there in winter but some parts are enclosed and that was comfortable !
