  • This alley gives an ambience of Old Tokyo. You will recognize a lot of Cat ornaments in this alley. I don't know the history of it, but it's nice... Most of the shops are open at 11.00 so when I came there at 10.00 it's still quiet...
  • Cute little shopping street. There are a couple tea shops, a couple china shops, and some food stalls. Definitely grab a couple snacks from the stall which always has a line and tons of fried snacks. I guess this is considered a view into older Tokyo.
  • Nice local shopping district. There are some nice food stalls here which are well worth visiting.
  • Classic part of Tokyo, lot of unique store... And cats😁
  • Real nice Edo area, great atmosphere especially weekend
