Great old fashioned shopping area. Some of the major department stores have left the area but there are many street vendors and excellent restaurants. Try Strawberry Fields Restaurant. Also, if you want to try Pachinko this this the area for you.

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 !
