Many shops were side by side in the wide street. Although it was nothing special, all of them were written in Chinese. According to the signboards, most of the shops here were jewelry stores.

The Japanese also use the Chinese characters same as Chinese. Yet the Chinese characters are not always used on the signboards. The people think it is much good-looking to use the alphabet. I think it is a proof that people are still longing for the Western culture. On the other hand, the people here seemed not to have a longing like Japanese. The alphabet was not used on the signboards.
