  • This is a great street with plenty of touristy things to do. Lots of food and souvenir shops. Lots of little statues in an ode to Japanese manga. From the port shuttle bus drop off at the main station...  more »
  • Youkai were smaller than I thought, but there are many youkai in the long street. Kitaro's music plays, and the light-up is a youkai. There are a lot of souvenir shops, so you can make the most of your time.

  • 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!!! Good to walk around and even to eat!! The sushi restaurant in the alley served really delicious seafood bowls!!
  • 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.
