A Walk in a Street of Tokyo, Japan!

in travel •  6 months ago

Would you like to have one last walk with us in one of the streets of Tokyo in the Sugamo area because this is again another style with small stores, Mc Donald's, temples and a tramway?

In this post I am going to show you photos of our walk from the Sugamo Station, to the Jizodori Shopping Street and the Koshinzuka Tramway Station.

All photos are mine and taken with my Samsung phone.

We went to this area just after going to the Yanaka Ginza shopping street, as it is just a short subway trip away, and we arrived at the Sugamo Station.

This is a map of the area where we had the walk.

First the Sugamo Station and it looks quite modern with shops.

There are different restaurants…

… and even a Mac Donald's, Japanese style.

If you are craving a burger, this might be the place to go.

When you continue, you can find the Edorokujizoson Shinsho Temple.

Then, you reach the Sugamo Jizodori Shopping Street.

This is a street that is recommended in Tour guides and that we wanted to see.

Some information about this street:

Sugamo (巣鴨) is a shopping district along Tokyo's Yamanote Line that famously caters to the elderly. The district's popular, 800 meter long Jizo Dori shopping street is also affectionately known as the "Old Ladies' Harajuku" in lighthearted comparison to the Harajuku district's status as one of Japan's foremost youthful shopping and fashion destinations.

There are some very nice shops in this street.

It is usually very crowded, but on that day, that was nice.

There is another temple in that street, which is the Togenuki Jijo Temple.

A messy toy shop.

We had to try one of these machines. For ¥100 ($0.90) you get some small toy.

Then we arrived at the end of the Sugamo Jizodori Shopping Street, and decided to take the tramway at the Koshinzuka Tramway Station.

Sugamo is a district I've never been to even though I've been to Tokyo many many many times. It's just a place that only existed on the train map to me.

But I really like how from Sugamo you took the tram. I didn't even know there was one! I'd probably take it all the way to Higashi Ikebukuro and take a walk over there. It's a big district. Thank you for your post! I'll be looking forward to the pictures of your next trip :)

@zhuwa, thank you for your comment. I am glad that my post showed you an area that you have never been even if you are more familiar with Tokyo than I am. Tokyo is so big that it would take months to see it all. I'll have a final post about Japan and that will be it, for this trip.

I have no ability to travel in Japan. But I have been reading your post and watching your uploaded photos. These are filling my mind. In the photos, your daughter is wearing mask. Is she ill? If so, take care of her. She is sweet, cute. Looking more from you.

Thank you @sayemsonai for being the first to comment. I am glad that you like my post. It was a bit cold that day and she was sneezing, so it was an additional protection.

I have always think Japan is a country worth visiting. Such a different and interesting culture.

Thanks for sharing your trip @gmichelbkk!

Thank you @dedicatedguy for commenting. Yes, Japan is worth visiting.

Japan surely have lots of pedestrians!

Yes, when they are not on a bicycle!
