We saw some roof covered shopping streets in Japan but this was the one we liked most. Lots of different little shops and restaurants where you can easily spend one or two hours when you visit Nara.

The covered shopping street is near to the JR Station. There are many souvenir shops and restaurants there to facilitate visitors while traveling in Nara. Recommended.

Great for Pokemon Raids when the wife is shopping. A lot of food, gadgets, drinks and just great to walk when it is bad weather

Good street to enjoy less crowds and find a decent restaurant under some cover. Less shops but definitely worth popping into for lunch or dinner especially if it is raining.

I am sure that if you ask a Japanese friend that they will easily source an inflatable Japanese deer on the internet as inflatables are used as advertising by many shops in Tokyo. Check out you tube videos of Nara Park to... More
