【Kumamoto Koichi's Downtown District】 What is Kamito · Shimodori? 【main Street】

Everyone who came to Kumamoto from outside the prefecture to visit Kumamoto Castle is definitely a place to visit, is not it "upstream / downtown"?

A little easy to organize the position relationship.

It is like this.

Incidentally, it is often mistaken for people outside the prefecture

"Upperu" → "Kami to trim"

"Downtown" → "Shimomoto"

Neither will be cloudy!

First of all downtown.

Height 10m on the ground, road width 15m, length 511m and a fairly large arcade nationwide.

~ Downtory Shopping Street Official Website ~
Shimosudo shopping district is located in the center of New Town / Uechuta shopping district, central shopping street representative of Kumamoto,
2 All the shopping streets were destroyed by air raids of the World War II and also damaged by the unprecedented flood damage of Showa 28 year.
With that, we expanded the road width 9m to 15m by building administrative divisions, established a one-sided arcade on each side of the sidewalk 3m, and established a commercial base.

Showa 22 Year street prosperity association (optional) established.
昭和44年1月~11月 新天街・2番(任意)各振興組合、昭和45年9月~46年1月3番街・4番街(任意)各振興組合が全蓋アーケード(511m)を建設。歩行者天国となりました。
Showa 53 year 5 month Established Shintengai, 2 Avenue, 3 Avenue, 4 Avenue Promotion Association.
It was divided into two phases, Showa 62 year 7 month (Shintengai) and Heisei 2 year 8 month (2 boulevard to 4 avenue).
We refreshed the high-rise arcade street complete with the size, structure and facts together with modern facilities unlike other cities.

I walked from the entrance to the exit of Shimoda!

There are apparel brand roadside shops, old-fashioned shops, drug stores and eating places.

You can actually feel the length of this arcade by actually walking.

The end of the downtown is "ball" before PARCO? "ball"? "Round"? It is a familiar object of Kumamoto prefecture.

Well, crossing this pedestrian crossing "Ueda".

However, do not despise the pedestrian crossing here, spots where Kumamoto Castle and Trams can shoot together, also used on the nationwide television as the background for Kumamoto weather is "Tonchocho".

We can catch a glimpse of Kumamoto Castle where restoration from the Kumamoto earthquake continues still.

Now, let's continue walking through Kami-dori!

It is an atmosphere that calmed down using trees abundantly compared to downtown. I guess there are a lot of shops that will continue from long ago!

When you came to Kumamoto it is rare nationwide, though, please try walking around in the very arcade! !
