  • It's a great store street, very slow pace, and the shops are very interesting. Take a walk and go shopping. Old Japanese feeling, like the old friends do not want to lose.

  • Jr day in the twilight of the station 5 minutes away, a lot of snacks, but also a lot of specialty shops. But be aware that some of the chairs are in which shop, and there is no room to sit on will be killed!
