This unique shopping arcade was opened in December 2010. Different from common shopping arcades, this arcade is made up of special shops run by creators having artisan attitude, as this area used to be inhabited by craftsmen of old schools.
The shoppers, accordingly, also enjoy workshop experience occasionally. The number of the shops reaches 50 now. The first picture shows the main street of this arcade. Therafter 'CHABARA AKI-OKA MARCHE' and 'B-1 Grand prix shokudo' B-grade gourmet food stalls, the menu of which is shown in the second picture, were opened adjacent to this arcade in 2013 and 2015 respectively. The former one sells selected food stuffs from all over Japan, and the latter one serves second-class gourmet cuisines good for a light lunch.
