Where’s CHUO-DORI Shopping street?/ 中央通り商店街ってどこ?

There are lots of shopping districts along the streets in the central area of Hiroshima City.

Famous festivals such as "Toukasan" and "Ebisuko" are also held in the city center, aren’t they?

You know what? Not only those famous festivals but big shopping malls and renowned restaurants among locals are located on the "Chuo-Dori Shopping Street!"
It’s the biggest, representative shopping street of Hiroshima.

Chuo-Dori Shopping Street? Where exactly is it?

Chuo-Dori Shopping Street begins at Hatchobori and runs through Chuo-dori to Peace Boulevard from north to south.
Its length is approximately three hundred meters. A variety of shops including department stores, electronics retail stores, discount stores, specialty shops and restaurants are along the street.
In 1994, the power transmission cables were put underground, and arched roofs were constructed in the district.
In winter, there’s a local event called “Tohryanse” which students wish for success in entrance exams, and safe and secure campaigns are carried out from early July to late August.
A banner of a police mascot “Mimawari-kun (a ‘patrolman’ in Japanese)” is put up in the district with an aim for a safe, vibrant city.
In a winter illumination event in the city center, with the theme of “Music Paradise,” colorful lights shaped like trumpets and treble clef are displayed along the street.
As the main site, the street is turned into a pedestrian precinct during “Toukasan” and "Ebisuko."

In early spring, the area becomes a popular sight with fully bloomed white magnolia which let you know that spring is just around the corner.

Yeah, the Chuo-Dori Shopping Street is very attractive in many ways; holding auspicious festivals and events, having a wide array of shops which sell clothing, household goods, electrical appliances, knick-knacks, and various kinds of Izakaya, restaurants, cafes, and bars.
Now you want to know where you’ll find each of the stores, huh?
It’s time to take a look at our street map and know better about the district. My wish is for you to fully enjoy the shopping street without getting lost.
