The alleys in the center of Kandy were crowded with people walking around

The center of Kandy is lined with stores. Even if you step into an alleyway, you will see many signs hanging on the walls and a lot of people coming and going. Kandy is the second-largest city in Sri Lanka after Colombo, the de facto capital.

Even though it is the second-most populous city in the country, it only has a population of about 120,000. In Japan, a population of 120,000 is about the same as that of Uruma City in Okinawa, so it is not a big city. Even so, when I walked around Kandy, I saw more people walking around than I expected, and it felt very lively. I wonder if this is because the town is located in the mountains and the population is concentrated in a small area.
