Kanemori Red Brick Warehouse Reviews
Nice place Many crafts , very stylish. Price are quite high But you can spend an hour and enjoy the atmosphere more »
建物自体は紅葉した蔦がからまりとても素敵ですが、中は美味しいケーキさんいくつかをのぞいて安っぽい土産物屋ばかりです。外観は風情があって良いのに中がこんなんで本当にガッカリ… 地元の歴史展示や、道の駅のように地元で取れたものを売る方がよっぽど魅力があると思います。 more »The building itself is very nice with autumn leaves, but inside it is only a cheap souvenir shop except for some delicious cakes. The appearance is really disappointed because it is like this though there is a good atmosphere... I think that it is much more attractive to sell local historical exhibits and local things like roadside stations.
Nice warehouse with potential, but the selection of goods for sale is poor and focused on budget tourists. This would be an opportunity to offer real quality produce from the region, but most items are cheap and tasteless. Very sad to see. I hope and wish that the owner would manage this great venue more responsibly.
Great atmosphere, at least around Christmas time. A few spots are worth checking out (especially Snaffles, though do note that the cafe next door is not theirs and so if you want to sit and eat Snaffles cheesecakes, you’ll need to at least buy some coffees at the cafe), but most of the shops inside are touristy rubbish. Can also get packed with your groups, though that seemed to come and go in waves.
