Have you ever visited ‘shoten-gai’ in Japan? It is a shopping street mostly located in small local towns. In Japan, central place of local communities was called ‘Shoten-gai.’ However, as large supermarkets became popular among people, local shops closed down their businesses and ‘shoten-gai’ disappeared.
Syuji Minami moved to Daita years ago. Then he had a lot of support from people in the area. He organized an event to save the shuttered shopping street.
