Retro Store in Furukawacho Shopping Arcade

a retro store just a 1-minute walk from Subway "Higashiyama Station" in a nostalgic, atmosphere-filled shopping arcade

Spanning about 250m from Sanjo Street to Shirakawa River, the Furukawacho Shopping Street boasts an arcade-style covered walkway. It holds historical significance as the terminal point of the Wakasa-Kaido Road (Saba-Kaido Road). Today, this nostalgic ambiance has made it a popular location for TV and film shoots. The bridge spanning the Shirakawa River, right by the south exit of the shopping street, stands as the symbol of Shirakawa and is a highly popular spot among tourists. The recent addition of 1,000 pastel lanterns suspended from the arcade has been the talk of the town, contributing to the street's revitalization and attracting tourists from various backgrounds.

A shopping street that continues to embrace both tradition and evolution, featuring time-honored establishments as well as new shops, cafes, galleries, and versatile spaces for workshops and experiences. The warmth of Furukawacho Shopping Street lies in its welcoming embrace of everything.
It's conveniently close to sightseeing spots such as Heian-Jingu Shrine, Yasaka Shrine, and Shijo-Kawaramachi, making it a recommended choice for accommodation facilities options!
