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.

I visited here in June. There were many old houses and the atmosphere was not bad. However, many cars passed the main street of this town and I was not able to relax. I left here in short time.
