Love the local shopping street. You can find local produce, supermarket, some nice small shops along the way. Catch the subway and get off at Fujisaki, take the number 4 exit and follow the small road on the left. It takes you all the way back to Nishijin subway station and also can connect to Canal City shopping mall.

This shopping street is located between subway Nishijin and Fujisaki station, in Sawara-ku (ward). The street was founded on the part of Karatsu-kaido road (唐津海道) since Edo period
You can walk the whole street within an hour or so. An interesting shopping district that is essential of old style Japanese shopping, with abundance of local produce such as fresh vegetables, seafood, bakeries, street food and more. There are a variety of restaurants whipping up local ramen and udon noodles, or even US style cafes (pizza & steak), with the many smells of food cooking are everywhere..
Not exactly “hype” that you are looking for but more specifically local shopping where you can mix with the locals as they do their daily shopping. Here you will see stalls forming a row in the center of the street. They are nicknamed “wheeled cart troop”. The carts sell fresh vegetables, sea foods and flowers. They are all fresh and reasonably priced. The stalls attract many people from the neighboring areas and probably visitors like us.!.
The street of Nishijin is always vibrant and lively with the brisk voices of these sellers. Do also explore the many small alleys shooting off the main arcade/road. Take your time and wander down the side lanes to explore the various cafes and eateries... It is really an alternative tourist visit , do try yourself..

On our arrival at the Nishijin subway station, we were slightly underwhelmed when we saw that the neighbourhood seemed to be rather quiet and full of girls' schools. On making our way topside, we saw that there were a couple of streets around 1 1/2 km long, bisected by a traffic light.

It turned out to be a rather interesting afternoon, as the neighbourhood and shops are an eclectic mix. Besides the old ladies selling their vegetables and flowers on their tri-wheelers, you can mix with the locals as they do their daily shopping at the fishmonger, fruit seller or grocers. Next door to a MK pharmacy, you can find a pachinko parlor and a bar called Lunatic, as well as a Daiso 100 yen store.

Take your time and wander down the side lanes to explore the various cafes and eateries, including ramen stalls. There was an intriguing placed called Cadillac Ranch Slowly, but we could not find out more as it was closed for the day.

There is a supermarket called Sunny on the same level as the subway, and you can buy fresh fruits such as strawberries and Fuji apples at a cheaper price compared to Hakata and Tenjin.

Came here expecting to see typical shotengai in Japan but this place is for local shops, going about their daily affairs.

If you are looking Hakata traditional arts and crafts, go the Hakata Kawabata Shopping Arcade at the old town Hakata. This place is connected to Canal City Mall via overhead bridge.

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 !

This shopping street is located between subway Nishijin and Fujisaki station. You can walk the whole street about 20 minutes or so. There are variety restaurants, including local ramen and udon noodles, or Indian, US style steak house, and so on.

Bustling, crowded, and neck-bendingly fascinating, this area features some of the city's best and cheapest shopping, in a setting that's wholly local and endlessly curious. don't miss!

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.
