Kokusai Dori Street 国際通り屋台村

Literally meaning “International Road”, Kokusai Dori Street is also the street that never sleeps, with a host of bars, restaurants, cafes, hotels and souvenir shops catering to the throngs of tourists that head here to shop, eat and play. This 2km stretch takes its name from the former “Ernie Pyle International Theatre”, a movie theatre that was built along the road after the war. There are several colourful shopping arcades here such as Heiwadori, Mutsumidori and Ichiban Hondori that are fun to explore, and you are likely to be able to find some izakaya here that offer live traditional music performances together with the meal – or if you head into one that looks patronized by the locals, don’t be surprised to find the customers bursting out into song spontaneously after their meal!

Great place for souvenirs, lots of different options. The restaurants have performances, but beware the food is overpriced. The place I went seemed like a good deal, but they charged us a seat fee as well as a performance fee.

我看過很多國家的夜市街頭都有點不同,這個街道卻有點像是馬來西亞馬六甲的GONGER STREET 大推這個街道

Locations to shop are:Heiwadori, Mutsumidori and Ichiba Hondori arcades.
Heiwadori: Shopping experience: underground: merchants of glassware, luggage, clothing, food, and massage.

Merchant will bargin with you on assumption that you have a similar priced item they sell.
