Skip Road is the name given to the main Nakanobu shopping street and covered arcade that starts just to the north of Nakanobu Station on the Tokyu Oimachi Line and to the west of the Asakusa Line station.
From the start, the covered arcade runs for approximately 360 meters, ending just short of Ebara-Nakanobu Station on the Tokyu Ikegami Line.
Compared to the much larger Palm arcade in nearby Musashi Koyama, Skip Road is much quieter, with more shops being locally run and the clientele seem noticeably older.
A number of shops, like the sembei (rice cracker) shop, and the Showa era coffee shop, look like they’ve been here since the roof was erected in 1969.
Although common in Osaka and regional cities throughout Japan, covered arcades such as Skip Road are relatively rare in Tokyo.
