Along the street about 400 meters long, there are more than 400 small
Thare are fish shops, dry foods shops, meat shops, clothes shops, sporting-goods shops and other many shops.
Originally here was the black market after the World War II.
In the 1950s, a lot of surplus goods of US Army in Japan had been sold here due to the Korean War, and this area had developed.
Recently sporting-goods shops are increasing, especially here is famous as the town of sneaker shop.
At the end of each year, these streets are crowded enough not to walk for buying the goods to get ready for the New Year.
