Disappointing really
Oct 2018
Its just another street converted into a covered shopping mall. Kochi doesn't offer that much in the way of attractions apart from the castle and museum next door and the shopping street wasn't that interesting. Yes there were lots of shops but many were closed (we were there on a Wednesday and it appears Wednesday is often a day shops are closed!). If you are in Kochi you might as well go for a stroll.

Bakumatsu Pilgrimage to Tosa (Today's Kochi)
Apr 2017 • Family
The bus got off from the high-way. The first stop was named Kochi-Inter-South Bus terminal, but it was no more than a bus stop with its roofed shelter and bench. We got worried about how remote Kochi might be.
Stepping out of the long distance bus, we found ourselves at Harimaya-bashi, the busiest area in Kochi City, and the street was actually busier than we had expected.
In many rural cities, streets are not busy with pedestrians, and most shopping malls are so called "shuttered malls", malls with some stores closed with their shutters. Kochi's shopping malls are busy and energetic against the trend, and there you can even find old-style street markets. Such market used to be open on a certain date of the month. For example, if a market was held on every 4th of the month, the market was called, most probably, Yokka-ichi, the market on the 4th. That is why we have so many place names such as xx-ichi.

Imo Ken!
May 2017 • Family
We came here on a Thursday morning during our cruise stop in Kochi. We came through here twice. First on the way to Kochi Castle & second on the way back to Harimayabashi Station to take a shuttle to the cruise ship. I've tried to find imo ken, sweet potato fries at Hirome Market food stalls, but wasn't able to find any. But I was able to find Imo ken at a stores in this shopping street! The store had a lot of free samples of their various snacks & I tired a lot! But none of them stood out like imo ken, which was delicious and sweet! We ate a lot of their imo ken sample, so we decided to buy a bag to compensate for that. 4 stars for Imo Ken!

Nice Covered Stroll to the Castle
Jul 2016 • Family
Just across the street from the Kochi Yosakoi Information Exchange Center is the entrance to the Harimayabashi Shopping Street which connects to the Obiyamachi Ichibangai Shopping Street. These streets are covered and make for a very pleasant walk to the Castle (even in the heat of July). There are plenty of shops, cafes and banks/atms along the street and downtown area to occupy your time.
