Reached there early in the morning to buy a watch. It is averagely priced when compared to watch stores in Dotombori. Got good discounts using card & passports for tourists. It is not far from Kuromon Ichiba Market.

We walked here after visiting Kuromon Market and it was quite disappointing. The streets were very quiet and most shops seemed to be selling old electronic items and toys. The stuff seemed expensive too. The atmosphere seemed dead and it was nothing compared to Akihabara...More
