This is sort of an old town, or a historical district in a way. Old row houses and residents of marchant families went through the tough period and are still in use. It is also characteristic that there are a lot of slopes and stairs. It will be fun going up and down along the shopping arcade and sideways to see the residents' lives.
古い町並みが残る空堀。大阪城へも近く、旧市街と呼んでもいいかもしれません。古い町屋や商家が残り、お店や複合施設として今でも使われています。坂道や階段が多く、商店街からそれるの脇道を進んで探索すると民家に紛れてお店が点在します。
