Showa-no-machi Shopping Street *

Seasonal information Date:2019/5/31

The central shopping street in Bungotakada City was the most prosperous town on the Kunisaki Peninsula from 1930s(Showa era). Since 1600s period, it prospered by marine transportation, and many transport ships that came and went to Osaka/Kobe were anchored in the early Showa era. Five main lines were gathered, and it became a key point to the peninsula outland area, the coast area and the Usa area. However, it was gradually overwhelmed by the waves of the times, and it became a lonely town like many shopping areas.

And, in the last days when shopping streets were fine, the “Showa Town” initiative launched in 2001 to revive the vibrancy of that Showa 30's. The Showa-no-machi Shopping Street authorized store, which started from 7 stores, has now grown to 44 stores, and now it has become a shopping district that receives approximately 400,000 visitors a year, but the heart of the people of the town waiting for visitors is It does not change.
