I have gone here twice to see one shop specifically and have ended up doing a great deal of window-shopping. It is almost like visiting a flea market in Europe or the USA. Again there is much to look over and be tempted to spend...More

Teramachi street it is not just an undercover market. It is a small window, that a tourist could see through it a part of Japanese culture, life, behaviour and market.

Such an amazing shopping experience. My favourite shopping visit out of the whole trip. So many shops and all unique and all the staff I encountered were so lovely and friendly. I could spend days there, one day wouldn't be enough to see everything.

The Teramachi Street shops are outdoor, but covered from the elements. This makes it a great option with inclement weather. Additionally, virtually all the shops are of a Japanese origin, so the items are unique and local. If you're looking for unique items for souvenirs...More

Teramachi is a covered street, the same as Nishiki but it is wider and therefore feels a lot less crowded, even though there was lots of people. There are galleries, food, clothes, whatever you want it is here. I really liked this area - worth...More

Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find
themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited
by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of
fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are
piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed
outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub
for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes.

Hi, we were perusing the many shops and I did see, but cannot offhand say where exactly it was now. The next door road mall also has a variety of clothing stores.

if you are referring to the time the stores open, generally at 9am - but the road stays busy until very late at night. with the many coffee shops etc.
