Arigato, Japonia! 49. Strada comerciala Shinsaibashi / Arigato, Japan 49. Shopping Street Shinsaibashi

Why are people attracted here? Shinsaibashi is a commercial covered arcade, housing over 500 shops, restaurants, pachinko parlors. There are a lot of eateries on the little side streets. Around noon a lot of people could be seen here, searching the menus and prices. Everybody finds something on his/her own taste.
Ce ii atrage pe japonezi aici? Shinsaibashi este o arcada comerciala, acoperita, lunga de 2 km. Peste 500 de magazine, restaurante, sali de pachinko (joc de noroc) se insira de o parte si de alta.

Stradutele laterale, care se desprind din acest bazar, sa-i spunem, ofera o gramada de locuri unde se poate manca bine. La ora pranzului, in fata lor vezi grupuri de oameni care studiaza meniurile, imbiati de un om al restaurantului.
