Karakoro Hiroba – Kyomise Arcade When the curtain of night envelops the water city of Matsue, a soft light wraps around a certain place. Its appearance is different from daylight, and welcomes visitors with a sense of familiarity. The Kyomise Arcade is located in the middle of Matsue’s city center, just 10 minutes by foot from the national treasure Matsue Castle. At night, street lamps light up with a soft glow, giving passersby a chance to take in the charm of the area. In the middle of this arcade is Karakoro Hiroba, a gathering spot for people strolling in the area and distinguishable by its Japanese umbrella-like roof. It is also the dock for the Horikawa Sightseeing Boat. Many people use this space because it is open to everyone. The name Karakoro comes from the beginning of a book written by a famous author from Greece who came to Japan in the Meiji Era named Lafcadio Hearn, also known as Yakumo Koizumi. He states that the sound of geta sandals crossing a wooden bridge makes the sound karakoro. There are many delightful looking shops nearby. There is a café with Japanese sweets and macha, a shop that serves soba and sake, and even an authentic Italian bar, making every visit exciting and worthwhile. On p.9 we introduced Itamoto Saketen, which is also in the area. Many of the shops have English speaking staff, and the arcade pamphlet has been translated into various languages for your convenience. On the other side of the river is a multi-purpose facility with the shared name Karakoro Kobo. Within this retro style building you can find miscellaneous goods and even a shop that lets you experience wearing kimonos. Karakoro Kobo is open during the day, so it’s ideal to check that out first before heading over to Karakoro Hiroba for an evening stroll. Both Karakoro Kobo and Karakoro Hiroba actively participate in special holiday or seasonal events, so they are worth checking out during those times too.MATSUEDay or Night Stroll SpotStunning Night Karakoro Hiroba [Kyomise Arcade] Address: 110 Suetsuguhonmachi, Matsue City, Shimane Pref.
