We enjoyed the wide variety of shops in the old buildings in this part of Hita. We also enjoyed our bus trip to the village of Onda, where Onda pottery is made.

This is a nice and quiet traditional street at Hita. The building is old and in good condition. The shops are very unique but like the common walking street. Great to spend half day there.
