  • The restaurant named spoon on this street is amazing. I had the best pasta in my 8 years in Japan here. It is a shame it is not available on google maps. Do eat at this restaurant if you visit the street.
  • It was beautiful, lots of stores to buy anything you want, and if you feel adventurous you can go up the mountain that is beside the street
