1. 2k540 (Ni-kei-goyon-maru) AKI-OKA ARTISAN/Handmade & creator’s goods shops’street


On Sep2011, an elevated railroad opened between JR-line Akihabara Sta. and Okachi-machi Sta. There are typical Japanese hand-made shops selling hand-made goods using sophisticated Japanese skills and techniques.
There are also other kinds of shops. A total of 50 shops such as genuine leather product shops, interior shops, hat stores, accessory stores, some coffee shops and restaurants are on the street.
We especially recommend "Nippon dept" which has typical Japanese products and foods for a reasonable price. And some hand-made Japanese ceramics shops too.
Parking for bikes & motor cycles are available here.
