Behind the Omote-Sando shopping street with a lot of visitors going and coming around souvenir shops is a backstreet called Machiya Street. It is a nostalgic avenue with old townscape and preserves the atmosphere of past epoch. There are cafes and art galleries renovated from old folk houses lining the street. If you just walk the street, you would feel as if you stepped back in time. Please take a leisurely stroll around this area, and you could feel the history and culture of Miyajima Island.
