We were taken surprise by inertia of this sleepy town but found adventure via the shops with products cheaper than Fukuoka city, cosy seating within department stores and izakaya available for lunch bento boxes. If you love shopping, you will find surprises.

Kamitori location is near Shimotori, just cross the road in Torichosuji from Shimotori and you will find Kamitori. Kamitori in the was busier than Shimotori but now Shimotori is a lot busier. However, there are still some interesting shops to visit.

This shopping street just seemed to go on forever. It is huge and with such a great range of shops and food. So many food options. Definitely a different vibe at night and a must see.

Big shopping place you cannot miss if you walk around. I was quite hungry because of heavy rain, local trains were canceled or delayed then I arrived Kumamoto quite late afternoon. Hang around this arcade then found nice Ramen specialty restaurant, "it to to(いつとうと)". Perfect...More

Great place to start your adventure into Kumamoto Cuisine. A simple shopping arcade if you go down the main street, but once you turn a corner, theres literally hundreds of food options you can choose from. Kumamoto is famous for their horse sashimi and mustard-renkon....More

This is north of Shimotori Arcade. Not much here and thus quieter, as I could only remember a big sports shop.
