  • By taking this road that starts next to the JR Sugamo Station, one enters a neighborhood years lights of Shibuya, Akihabara and other... Here we plunge into a popular Tokyo, 70s/80s. There is a small temple, clothing stores, junk shops, convenience stores, restaurants. We have the impression that the time is suspended and it is a real breath of fresh air to escape from the tumult of life Tokyo. If you have JR Pass, you take a walk an hour in this neighborhood!

  • It was very bad weather but I thought the street was nice and fun to go on. Many special deals with youth fashion.

  • For the first time went sugamo jizo-Dori shopping street. So I went to the 4/4 4 day fair in was crowded and fun. First of all, "However you know she's ' to the backwoods of purr, togenu (Temple). Would have to come from the delicious bun (100 yen). My grandmother was lively and got power. Also want to go to day 4.
