This Shotengai is rather small and nothing compared to other larger ones in major cities. Would not return.

A major shopping place in Kumamoto. It is a covered street. So if it is rainy and cold day, it is a best place to go.

This street is besides the hotel we are staying so easily accessible. It is also near the castle so everything within this shopping area. There was local fashion, souvenirs, snacks, restaurants within the shopping street.

It was also very expensive at 3500 yen per pax. Pretty pathetic as I could count the strain of vegetable. Other than this bad experience, the shopping street is very interesting. There are many souvenir to bring home but do remember made in Japan products are what we look for. Many shopkeepers will emphasize to you that the crafts, textile, etc are made in Japan. There are many bigger shopping malls nearby.…
