On one of our many trips to Japan we came across this shopping / dinning street in Kobe that was very unexpected.
While we already knew how cat crazy Japan is we just didn’t expect to find a whole cat themed shopping area!
Different country flags showed cute cat themed scenes. And a lot of the shops had little cat guardians in front of their stalls.
Such as this giant cat welcoming tourists to Japan. 😀
Later that night we realised that the whole cat themed didn’t just stop at the flags and things like the blow-up cat dolls outside the shops…
Even after closing hour the shutters made the whole area feel more welcome! You want to walk around and check out all the different art used by the shop owners. 🙂
For those that have not been to Japan before one of the best part of many of these shopping arcades is that they are fully enclosed! So even if it’s raining you won’t have to worry about getting wet. 😀
We hope you enjoyed our look at this quirky little road in the midst of Kobe!
