Branching of the exquisite Shijo Street are many covered pedestrian arcades. Once a street, they are now converted to shopping streets, but the streets now have tiled floors, as if you were in a mall, but instead it is a long street. Teramachi-dori has many...More

We accidentally stumbled onto this street when we tried to walk from Gion to our hotel. It is an interesting, roofed, open-air street with stores and restaurants at both ends. We ended up buying takoyaki & taiyaki, both of which were decent. A good place...More

It's a walk from the Shijo-Karasuma Station, but this was a interesting place to visit. You can either walk along ground level to do extra shopping while you head towards Teramachi, or cut through the crowds and stop lights by taking the underground passage. There...More

A waste of time to visit this street as they sell all the things you expect to see in Japan in just about every major shopping area. We find the parallel street of Shinkyogoku far more interesting and have lots more to offer, especially for...More

Why interested in international brands when in Japan? But where to find them as usually in department stores like Takashimay you find mainly European and American brands. Here you can find if not everything- a lot. Any goods, food, you name it. Certainly it is...More

A great shopping area. Everything from baked goods to raw seafood, hats to cloth and arcades to shrines. There are numerous places that offer free samples but you probably should check what it is before accepting. Good prices but shop around before you buy...

Another shopping arcade. You get the usual bright lights shouting for attention. All kinds of wares on sale. All kinds of restaurant. As I am not a shopper, the saving grace is the traditional architecture at one end of the street.

You can find the entire world of shopping here: from food to general goods, from green tea to shoes and t-shirt. Some shops are original, some others are really souvenir only. But the atmosphere is so good and vibrant. Ideal for afternoon especially when rainy...More

Lots of variety, lots to see and feel, great place, but be careful as some of the goods on display were not made in Japan. Choose carefully if you only want to buy Japanese made products

Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find
themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited
by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of
fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are
piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed
outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub
for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes.
Trends-in-the-making can be spotted in the tall

Hi, we were perusing the many shops and I did see, but cannot offhand say where exactly it was now. The next door road mall also has a variety of clothing stores.
