  • Personally, not move forward too! The tacky shops... it seems. Certainly be lively. But tourist-oriented shops, business was dining with plenty of care is centered. But it certainly has been in business from Showa. But it's crowded, just deli or bistro. Hey sorry. Bought at 中野屋 Ms. tsukuda-NI, raised early on.

  • Yuuyake getting smaller is the famous staircase. Shopping 50 meters and is small in size, Deli shop, convenient shopping for dinner. Chestnut's famous cafes such as hanging out ideal for strolling.

  • There are numerous quaint shops here selling a variety of different things. There are also a bunch of food vendors as well. The atmosphere is peaceful. I stopped here first on my trip to Tokyo and loved it so much I made it my last stop as well.
  • Old traditional neighborhood. Unfortunately we arrived a bit late. You must get there earlier in the day. Nevertheless we enjoyed. Awesome stalls scenery etc.. a bit off the usual beaten paths.. some beautiful sakura in the cemetery just as you'd expect.
  • Lots of small shops and unique souvenirs. There's a small 100 yen shop with a great selection, and a couple of restaurants. It's great for shopping locally.
  • the cemetery its pretty, we didn't see any cat, also the street it's really cool. There is a coffee shop with good coffee and the inside it's really interesting.
  • Local shopping street.. walking through the local neighbourhood enroute may give you some pleasant surprises
