There is a morning market here, where you can buy things cheaply; there are all kinds of things to eat and play. There is also a drugstore, so it is a relatively lively and busy place in Matsuyama.
The shopping street is right across the street from the hotel, so I went inside at night to find a place to eat, and shopping is also good, with drug stores and MUJI.
It is one of the shopping areas in the center of Matsuyama. It is a pedestrian street with arcades partially covering the ceiling. Okaichi is considered the most popular shopping street in Matsuyama.
