Sogawa shopping arcade
If you got an itch for shopping you can always head off to one of the many malls in the area. There is also the opened sogawa shopping arcade with its many cloths shops. I doubt you’ll find the experience in your top ten things you’ve done in Japan, but hey, its Toyama!
At night, you find the local youth bust out their latest dance routines. Always fun.
