More unique shop[s and restaurants. Mochi making shop with fresh mochis was pretty amazing. Not as large as other cities which is exactly why we liked it.

The shopping street was not included in our itinerary that day. All of us were focused on the sites inside Nara park. The deer, gardens, temples, museums and everything else. It's only on the way back to the train station that we received a message...More

We saw some roof covered shopping streets in Japan but this was the one we liked most. Lots of different little shops and restaurants where you can easily spend one or two hours when you visit Nara.

This covered shopping arcade close to Nara Park. You can find all kinds of arts and craft shops, stores selling clothes and accessories both modern and traditional, and souvenir shops selling tea, rice crackers, stuffed deer toys, and traditional confectionery. Many of the shops are...More

Great place to get your souvenirs. It is very busy and a huge mix of people. Here you can get the more traditional Japanese gifts rather than tat. Can get very warm on a nice day as the streets very narrow.

Covered shopping area good for rainy days. Found some nice souvenir shops and there is Daiso on this street, where everything is 108 yen and not of bad quality either.

We searched for a meal place and a shopping, but we could not find any attractive shops other than that of 'Nara-pickles'.

The covered shopping street is near to the JR Station. There are many souvenir shops and restaurants there to facilitate visitors while traveling in Nara. Recommended.

Great for Pokemon Raids when the wife is shopping. A lot of food, gadgets, drinks and just great to walk when it is bad weather

Good street to enjoy less crowds and find a decent restaurant under some cover. Less shops but definitely worth popping into for lunch or dinner especially if it is raining.

I am sure that if you ask a Japanese friend that they will easily source an inflatable Japanese deer on the internet as inflatables are used as advertising by many shops in Tokyo. Check out you tube videos of Nara Park to... More
