In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.
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.
For updated information on opening hours, closings, prices, and more, please check the official website or ask the facility directly.
