Central Takamatsu Shopping Arcades by Night
Enjoy the nightlife of Takamatsu!
There are 8 shopping arcades located in the center of Takamatsu City, which are collectively known as the “Central Takamatsu Shopping Arcades”.
These outdoor shopping arcades, which stretch out in all directions, are almost entirely covered, and with a combined length of 2.7 km, they form the longest shopping arcade in Japan.
In the afternoon, the arcades are full of shoppers, but at night, you can experience a completely different atmosphere. Closed during the day, Japanese bars (izakaya), which line the back alleyways light up at night, and the area comes alive with company employees on their way home from work, as well as students and tourists.
There are many bars and restaurants that serve regional specialties such as Olive-fed Wagyu Beef, Honetsukidori Chicken-on-the-Bone, and fresh seafood from the Seto Inland Sea. If you find a place that interests you, feel free to stop in for a bite!
