Motomachi shopping street

Photograph of a covered shopping street in Japan. On either side are the supports for the curved central roof, and a person to the left giving context for its large size

The walk from the end of this street to Sannomiya Station is about 2km. Apart from crossing the road in a couple of places, it’s pretty much all under cover.

Well worth the walk, especially at night when it’s lit up. Although day time has its charms too.

And remember to look up AND down.
