  • Was the image of the mother and father of a heartwarming town near the train station is seedy? Also, there was a gap between the image.

  • This is the togenuki jizo-centered senior citizens that tourist town. Also at the intersection of Toei Subway Mita line and Yamanote Line transfers, was decent pub in front of the station.

  • Sugamo is known to be an area where many seniors lives. The old ladies Harajuku called it sometimes. One tip is to look into the shops where they only sell red things, anything related to celebrate that you have reached a certain age.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
