I took my husband here, 妖怪 town!! We got spooky and wonderful souvenirs like this wooden post card that we colored in the shop! Hope we live closer so that we can visit the cute shops more often!!!

What an interesting street! This street is named after the famous comic writer and there are full of small statues of min characters in his comic books. These characters are goblins and these small statues are unbelievably refined ones. There are more than hundreds of them on the street. If you have the time it would be a great fun to find all of them.
