“A different kind of covered arcade”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

Covered shopping arcades are not unusual in Japan. In my experience, they are often filled with fashionable shops, fast food outlets and chain coffee shops. However, kawabatadori is different. It has a very local feel. There are lots of religious shops, tea shops and shops which sell local food delicacies. In addition to this, there are some glitzy dress shops for the Nakasu girl, some more sedate shops for the grandmas, as well as the odd hip hop store thrown in.
Udon and ramen shops, too.
It leads onto Canal City and Kushida Jinja. Also accessible by subway, bus or a nice stroll from Tenjin or Hakata.
It's quite a local experience.
