Now this the place you’d find yourself in if you visit Asahikawa. The shopping district of the city! Here, you’d come across a lot of bronze looking statues, the man playing the saxophone to the cat is my favourite one! In the early hours of the morning before anything has opened, I saw many cleaners around, wiping the statues and keeping the entire street spotlessly clean. You’re not supposed to ride your bike on the shopping street, a school teen did so and got told off by one of the cleaners. Although the entire area was pretty much empty, rules are rules in Japan.
