In Japan, many people often shop at their local "shōtengai". A shōtengai is a street of stores by the local train station. The shōtengai or shopping arcade consists of all kinds of stores from grocery stores and bookstores to restaurants and hair salons. Depending on how rural or urban the area is, the size and variety of stores differs significantly. The shopping arcade is a popular place for housewives to pick up a few already cooked side dishes or for businessmen to pick up a quick dinner. The stores of the shōtengai are often run by the local townspeople and have a very homey atmosphere.
