The covered shopping street, which actually forms a T, offers every imaginable kind of store. Tiffany's to Pachinko parlors. It's got it all! Great place to wander and be out of the weather.

I visited that street several times. After visiting the shopping arcades in Osaka, Hiroshima and other cities, it looked me too quite. The shops looked old fashion and mostly empty. Maybe because my visits were at the evening.

It won’t make sense to compare this street with the 5th of NY, or Ave. Monaigne, Paris, or Ginza Tokyo... This lovely, long shopping arcade is unique of it’s kind, fits well for it’s local residents in a city like Takamatsu (高松). Not a place...More
