First to Review

Shimotori is one of the two major shopping districts in Kumamoto. It is within short walking distance of Kumamoto Castle making it a good spot if you are looking to do some shopping and/or get something to eat after visiting the castle.

Like other shopping districts in Japan, Shimotori consists of a huge array of shops and eateries in a covered setting. It is not a mall behemoth though. More like a pedestrian friendly street full of shops.

There are also backstreet shopping areas adjacent to Shimotori offering even more choice. Specifically in regards to restaurants. It seemed like the restaurants inside Shimotori were mostly fast food or casual eateries.

If you are visiting Kumamoto Castle, I would recommend checking out Shimotori if you are looking for a nearby attraction to visit in conjunction with this trip.
