5 tips

shopping day ^^

It is pretty nice there!
Not so many people compared to Dotonbori (Osaka).
I like the cafes with delicious cold sweet things in summer!

When you need a break from the temples of Nara, this shopping street provides a nice return to modernity. Lots of shops, vendors and cafes. When you are there, try the Akebi fruit--I haven't seen it sold anywhere else in Japan!
