Nakamise Shopping Street (Kaminarimon) Reviews
浅草寺雷門を潜ると直ぐ目の前の両側を店が建ち並んだ表参道。国内外の観光客で大変賑わっています。江戸時代から食べ物屋やお菓子屋等が並び楽しい通りです。 more »When you dive through Sensoji Raimon, Omotesando is lined with shops on both sides of front of you. It is very crowded with tourists in Japan and abroad. It is a fun street with food shops and candy shops since the Edo period.
連休なので観光客でいっぱい。 ラグビーワールドカップ直後なので海外からの観光客もいつもより多いってタクシーの運転手さんが言ってました。 食べ物のお店やお土産物屋さんがたくさん。 仲見世通りは食べ歩き禁止になっているので、店の中に小さな食べるコーナーを作ってるお店もありますし、「仲見世通りから出て食べてください」と言うお店もあります。 ただ、実際には食べ歩きしてる方がたくさんいて、混んでるので服とか... more »It's a holiday, so it's full of tourists. The taxi driver said that there were more tourists from overseas than usual because it was just after the Rugby World Cup. There are a lot of food shops and souvenir shops. Nakamise Street is prohibited from eating, so there are some shops that make small eating corners in the shop, and some shops say, "Please go out of Nakamise Street and eat." However, there were a lot of people who were actually eating and walking, and because it was crowded, I became worried whether clothes would be dirty. It is fun to walk while standing with Japanese-style souvenirs and souvenir shops of so-called tourist spots. It was quite crowded, so I thought it was a good idea to be careful about your child's lost child.
You'll definitely going to find there something for you and for taking with you. Souvenirs of all kinds, cakes, toys, bracelets, please look and search all over the place there its quite okay for "mapping" the place there, so you can see different prices for the same item or a more beautiful one. I bought a few bracelets there a asked to repair the one I bought elsewhere 5 years ago. They did it for free an very very fast, also had adjusted one bracelet that was too big. Nice, very nice and respectful people.
A lovely street full of stores where you can buy from local sweets to gifts for your family and friends. There's a great selection of knife stores and fake food stuff. Some of the stores offer tax free shopping usually you need to spend around 5400 yen to be able to apply for tax refunds, selectes shops in the street allow you to combine tickets from multiple stores to reach the tax free limit. A tax free office is located at the North end of the street
