A variety of shops in an undercover alley, including a pet store selling miniature dog breeds for almost 500,000 Yen! Otherwise, you'll find the usual shoes, watches (G-star, Swatch etc), mobile phones, clothing, and food.

One of many shopping streets/areas in Kobe. Local products with anything possible that you could think of is there. Prices are very reasonable and polite retailers. Good service as the rest of Japan. Definitely worth a stroll (long stroll) down this street.

The closest station would be Sannomiya Station itself. If you have to take a different line in, try to find a station that’s closest to or transits near Sannomiya, as it is a terminal stop.
