Nagoya-City Nagoya's Underground Shopping Mall
Nagoya, Aichi's prefectural capital, is home to a growing underground shopping mall linked to the train stations. In fact, Nagoya Station's underground shopping mall was the first such subterranean high street in Japan. Across a wide area equivalent to two baseball stadiums there are 407 outlets covering everything from local souvenirs and daily household items to fashion and food. These days when Nagoya is mentioned, often the first thing that springs to mind is the city's underground shopping mall.
