Fun place

It was a good place to walk around and while the time away. Loads of small cafes and probably more lively in the night than in the day.

A nice place to experience the local lifestyle away from the hectic down town. Good place to get the local taste. Coffee house along the street good to relax on a lazy days.

This shopping street is located between subway Nishijin and Fujisaki station, in Sawara-ku (ward). The street was founded on the part of Karatsu-kaido road (唐津海道) since Edo period You can walk the whole street within an hour or so. An interesting shopping district that is essential of old style Japanese shopping, with abundance of local produce such as fresh vegetables,... More

Came on a Saturday afternoon. Many and extreme friends local trying their best to explain their product. Nice place to shop, away from the big shopping outlets and centre. Many local restaurant at reasonable price.

Many shops but I am attracted by the Yen100 shops and the food outlets, where there are many around. It was cold when we were there in winter but some parts are enclosed and that was comfortable !

Love the local shopping street. You can find local produce, supermarket, some nice small shops along the way. Catch the subway and get off at Fujisaki, take the number 4 exit and follow the small road on the left. It takes you all the way back to Nishijin subway station and also can connect to Canal City shopping mall.

Came here as I wanted to find local stuff. Was not disappointed. There's a Supermart (daiei) - not those (in terms of size) 7-11 or Familymart etc. At daiei supermart, one can find cheaper sourvenirs e.g., green tea (same packaging as those sold in tourist place like Dazaifu!). Walk around to the "other end" (Sarawa Highway) and one can find... More

On our arrival at the Nishijin subway station, we were slightly underwhelmed when we saw that the neighbourhood seemed to be rather quiet and full of girls' schools. On making our way topside, we saw that there were a couple of streets around 1 1/2 km long, bisected by a traffic light. It turned out to be a rather interesting... More

Bustling, crowded, and neck-bendingly fascinating, this area features some of the city's best and cheapest shopping, in a setting that's wholly local and endlessly curious. don't miss!
