Shopping mall near the sea with a lot of popular retail shops and local delicacies.

Last update :

The shopping mall is located near a gently curved coast. Since its opening in 2018, it has been one of the area's most trendy spots. Visitors can stroll around the complex in a resort-like atmosphere while feeling the refreshing sea breeze. A wide range of retail shops are lined up on the two floors.

The shops include famous apparel such as "DOGDEPT" combining original dog wear/items and other fashion goods. The Oarai Maiwai Market sells souvenirs from Ibaraki Prefecture and vegetables and marine products from the Oarai area; it’s very popular among tourists. Another popular shop is the "OARAI GARUPAN Gallery," which displays information and sells goods related to the well-known anime series "Girls und Panzer," which is set in Oarai.

After shopping, eat some local delicacies. The most highly recommended places are the Oarai Hamakko Shokudo Fish Heaven, where fresh local fish are available at reasonable prices, and Oarai Umi-no-Ie manoMano with a unique menu including oriental clam ramen and the Hitachi beef burger.
