Opened in 1956, the 800-meter-long Musashi Koyama Shopping Street is Tokyo’s most famous, offering a range of wares, produce, fashion, and eateries at affordable prices. Face off against the crowds of locals in the competitive search for cheap bargains.
Known as a shotengai in Japanese, these covered shopping arcades are a unique feature of all Japanese cities and are a regular destination for locals running their daily errands. While Tokyo’s department stores cater to first class consumer experiences, shotengai-style shopping streets such as this one in Musashi Koyama are tailored for everyday people and regular day-to-day life.
