Sugamo Jizo-dori Shopping Street, Toshima

(3.5/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
Take a walk down the street nicknamed the "Harajuku of Elderly Ladies," Sugamo Jizo-dori Shopping Street. With the average age of the locals here a little higher than usual, the products and foods on offer tend towards the traditional, and the atmosphere remains markedly laid-back. Browse the stalls and shops selling traditional clothing, admiring the fine craftsmanship behind each iconic piece. Sample some of the local delicacies, including "shiodaifuku," a rice cake served with a salty bean paste, and "monaka," wafers stuffed with bean jam.

  • Dog and walk through every day. 4 days (4, 14, 24) in sugamo jizo shrine to people who come in large crowded. Open-air (Okonomiyaki, baby castella, antiques, this burn, old clothes, etc) also came out, fun. Recently, many foreign residents. But as local hope will power up a little shop.

  • 和現代化的大JR 站近在咫尺,但商舖售賣的貨品則截然不同,以傳統和中上年紀顧客為主。以食品,日用,衣服為主,亦有一間郵局。某些服裝店的價格也相當便宜。食品方面有多間售賣大福的老店,亦有賣魚餅,芝麻的專門店,亦有一間人氣極旺的食店,経常排長龍,很多本地人用餐,我們亦點了以炸蠔,炸魚的定食。物超所值。如果想要看看有別於繁盛和時尚的商業區,不妨試試去巢鴨 
  • Traveling for the first time went to sugamo! Shopping street was busy until the appointed time, so in the Holy Land interview library was very lively very salt CHOW Tai Fook shops and the kintaro candy shop shop sells only red underwear for good luck!!!
