I came across this shopping street after strolling through nearby Chinatown. There’s a mix of traditional and modern stores. I stopped to buy donuts. As it’s a covered street it would be a good option on a rainy day.

A mainly covered shopping area with lots of everything. Busy but not unreasonable. Fun to see both the familiar and the new. Lots of shoe stores since many made in Kobe.
