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.

A nice place to experience the local lifestyle away from the hectic down town. Good place to get the local taste. Coffee house along the street good to relax on a lazy days.

It was a good place to walk around and while the time away. Loads of small cafes and probably more lively in the night than in the day.

Came on a Saturday afternoon. Many and extreme friends local trying their best to explain their product. Nice place to shop, away from the big shopping outlets and centre. Many local restaurant at reasonable price.

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 !

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.

Came here as I wanted to find local stuff. Was not disappointed. There's a Supermart (daiei) - not those (in terms of size) 7-11 or Familymart etc. At daiei supermart, one can find cheaper sourvenirs e.g., green tea (same packaging as those sold in tourist place like Dazaifu!). Walk around to the "other end" (Sarawa Highway) and one can find... More

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... More
