It’s undercover, busy with people and stacked with shops and restaurants. A good place to hang around on a rainy day.

There are many shops and restaurants on the Higashimuki Shopping Street. With the added bonus of being very close to the train station, temples and the Deer Park

A covered arcade in Nara, which is well worth the visit. There's a Daiso hundred yen shop here that is jam packed with bargains you never knew you needed. Good place for rice paper and origami paper, etc.
