#Shopping ,#Travel Tip ,#Useful

If two shops are selling the same product, the cheapest option is best! There are lots of Tax-free stores in Hiroshima, so if you want to enjoy shopping, it’s a good idea to check them out. In this article, I’ll introduce some of the Tax-free stores around Hiroshima City!

Hondori Street

Hondori Street, located in the Hiroshima city center, is a shopping district with several shops. They’re all under one roof, so you don’t need to worry about the weather. The street links the Hatchobori and Kamiyacho areas, so if you’re out sightseeing in the rain or hot sunny day, I recommend using this street.

There are also several tax-free shops for international tourists. Drugstores like Wants, Daikoku Drug, and Cocokarafine are all tax-free as well. They’re good for buying products like cosmetics, medicine, and food.

Some of the clothes shops are also tax-free.

Large Second-Hand Shops

Tax-free second-hand shop, BOOK OF SUPER BAZZER. In addition to books, they have other second-hand items like clothes, appliances, games, toys, and instruments for affordable prices. It would be fun even if you’re just looking around. It’s also close to Hondori Street and Peace Memorial Park, so why not have a look?
