  • Sugamo, visited the hotel happens to be picked. JR station walk West on Hakusan Dori and dumped-it and will stand out as the name of the street enters the eye. Festival of togenuki jizo, visit happened to be enshrined as a temple (month 4) was that there were so many people. On both sides of the street to old-fashioned shops, street stalls and enjoy the feel of a stall. Despite the midweek was walking so many elderly people, pay a visit to the Temple had been. Overseas tourists in kimono and thrift store shopping, tourism is being felt. This is the street to the entrance of sugamo station exit, roku-jizos Edo jizo bodhisattva statue enshrined Geng rice no Okami is intrinsic Temple, feel the history and ri歴 of. Shop called the Red panties in Japan was impressive in the midst of, and. Red power and longevity as well as hot air was stuffy.
