Kyoto shopping

kyoto shopping mall ginza arcade kawaramachi shijo dori

Shopping centers in Japan frequently have a similar look and feel to them. Some are called ginza, some are out of doors, but a common look is the one above–sort of a covered arcade of sorts.

This one is one of the largest, if not the largest, for this variety in Japan. You head down one of these lanes off of Kawaramachi Dori (河原町通) or Shijo Dori (四条通) in Kyoto and when you get to the end you can turn the corner to head down another mega-long street loaded with nothing but more shops and more shoppers.

    I love them.
    They’re so much better than Western shopping malls, but you still feel like you’re in the street (because you technically are).

    I think I walked down all of them in Kyoto! Nice memories and similar photos to mine…
