Shotengai of the World

Japan has shotengai (covered shopping arcades). We don't have any in Toronto (probably because of the climate). Where else do they have shopping arcades? Are there any in places with climates similar to Toronto? Links and pictures would be appreciated.

I've seen pictures of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milan and I've been to the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul so I know they exist outside of Japan.
What I would like to see are examples of other shopping arcades, especially ones that aren't such famous attractions in themselves or ones in places that have real winters.
