This gaudy, bustling, unabashedly touristy collection of Chinese restaurants and trinket and medicinal herb stores should be familiar to anyone who's visited Chinatowns elsewhere. It's fun for a stroll, particularly in the evening when lights illuminate the elaborately painted shop façades. Restaurants tend toward the overpriced and may disappoint sophisticated palates (set meals from about ¥850), although it's one of the few places in Japan where street snacking is condoned (snacks from about ¥200).
