Let’s walk Tenmonkan!

I walked through Tenmonkan’s arcade street which runs the middle of Tenmonkan are (from tram stop “Tenmonkan-dori” to Terukuni Shrine)

At the first crossroad after you enter Tenmonkan Arcade Street, you will find the “Kagoshima Local Food Market (Kagoshima Tokusanhin Shijo)”. The market sells famous product of each local area of Kagoshima Prefecture. This is the good spot to buy souvenirs.
