Chinatown (Nankinmachi) Reviews
20年程前家族旅行で来た時と変わっていて、食べ歩き用の食べ物を売る屋台のような店ばかりでゆっくり食事をしようと思えませんでした。目立つユニークなお店もなく、素通りしました。 more »It was different from when I came here on a family trip about 20 years ago, and I didn't think i'd try to eat slowly at all the stalls selling food for walking. There was not a unique shop which stood out, too and it passed.
平日の昼時に訪問しました。流石にごった返す休日の人出とまではいきませんでしたが、観光客で賑わっていました。 幾つかのショップや飲食店は閉まっていたもののランチ営業の店舗も多く、昼食には困りませんでした。又、中華風の食材等々の店舗もオープンしており、一寸した土産物にも適していました。 more »I visited at noon on weekdays. It was crowded with tourists though it did not go to the people of the holiday which returned to the meteorite. Some shops and restaurants were closed, but there were many lunch shops, so we didn't have any problems for lunch. In addition, there is a store such as Chinese-style ingredients, and it was suitable for a small souvenir.
