A good place to visit if your hotel is near the Kumamoto train station. It takes a 170-yen tram ride or about 1000-yen taxi ride. Most of the shops are under the arcade roof so it is a good place to be during rainy times....More

This arcade was just across the road from our hotel. It's a mixture of expensive and cheap shops. Lots of restaurants and cafes. It is always busy, but nothing different to any other Japanese city shopping arcade

Just like a traditional covered arcade in many large Japanese city, this 'street' is full of shops and restaurants. It will be a good attraction for window shoppers and a must for gourmet visitors.

If you like to shop, than Shinshiga Shotengai will bring amusement for hours on end. Neslted within the quiet hustle of Kumamoto downtown, you will find farmer's markets pairs next to department stores, the match of old and new, interesting urban exploration.

Thete is only one real good reason to shop here - it is better airconditioned than the streets. The quality of the shops though is second class.

I wonder why this place is so crowded. It consists of so many karaoke shops there's not much to shop or do here. Although I found a great soba/tempura restaurant here.

Covered arcade. Loads of shops of all sorts (many upscale, some inexpensive) and restaurants. We had a favorite lunch place here near the far end of the arcade - small, family run place - we have no idea what the name is - great bowls...More
