We strolled through the district in the night and had a fantastic time. The street food vendors and little shops were time well spent. I highly recommend trying one of the crab restaurants and the okonomiyaki restaurants. There are American stores and, of course, McDonalds and Starbucks. You can even take a ride in the river, ride the ferris wheel. The night scenery was equally, if not better, sight. All the lights and billboards light up making it reminiscent of times square in New York. Enjoy the area!

The area is a big alley of eateries, shops and entertainment arcades. Food sold are rather repetitive hence, looking at which has the shorter queue would be the way to save time and enjoy more food! Good place for lunch or dinner with the many choices! Probably half a day or so would be sufficient to finish exploring the area!
