Yichi Dajie (One Foot Street)
Yichi Dajie is roughly 11 yards long, and sits southeast of the east end of Liulichang. It's now combined with Yangmeizhu Skewed Street. As the name indicates, it's the shortest hutong in Beijing, with only a few shops to its name. Even so, Yichi Dajie is a nice spot to check out if time permits. It's possible that the limited length has kept things more authentic than would otherwise be possible. Nobody has contemplated putting a Starbucks in- we can put it that way. Yichi Dajie is in Xicheng.
