    Center of Hiroshima: Nagerakawa shopping area

    by hundertmorgen Written Jun 22, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hondori arcade

    Hiroshimas geographical center is comprised five districts. One district - Nagerakawa - is neon central.

    Here the signs of bars, restaurants of all classes, and sundry entertainment establishments set the swarming streets aglow. During the day, shoppers may be out in throngs, particularly around Mitsukoshi Department Store and Midorii Tenmaya. Hondori is the district due west of here, and just south of the tram stops for Kamiya-cho, Tate-machi and Hacchobori. Actually, Hondori is the name of the arcade that runs through this section, leading you to correctly assume that there are many shopping opportunities to be had here.

    But apart from the PARCO and Fukuya shopping centers that act as anchors for smaller shops--Iena, Spick and Span, St. James, and Hybryds to name a few--there are also a number of swank drinking spots--qoo, for example.

    What to buy: Here you will find a lot of 100 Yen shops...
