Nakamise Shopping Street


Head to Nakamise-dōri for trinkets, snacks and knick-knacks

At Nakamise-dōri, more than 80 stalls selling trinkets and knick-knacks are proudly open for business. The long, crowded pedestrian lane is a bustling street running from Kaminarimon gate to Hōzōmon gate, where different generations of Japanese come together. The wide alley is chock-a-block with small shops selling temple paraphernalia as well as traditional items of varying beauty and quality. The little arcade of Nakamise-dōri is also the place to pick up locally made, salty sembei (crispy rice crackers) and age-manju (deep-fried bean buns).
