Shotengai (traditional shopping arcades) are the veins that run through the cities of Japan. Bastions of independent businesses and arteries of the communities they serve, shotengai play a crucial role in local areas around the country. In Kagoshima the main and most renowned shotengai is Tenmonkan which is named after an astronomical observatory (tenmon) which used to be located there in Edo times. There are a plethora of small, independent boutiques, chain stores, cafes, restaurants, and local specialty stores perfect for picking up some unique souvenirs.
Bustling, engaging, and atmospheric, Tenmonkan is a must-visit for guests looking for something local and to find products and experiences that you can't find in big cities. The area of Tenmonkan is also known for being a central location regarding accommodation with several hotel chains and independent operators based here.
