Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

子供の頃から変わっていません。
懐かしいですね。
仏具屋さんで数珠を見ていたらお店のおじさんが色々と仏具について教えてくれました。

It hasn't changed since I was a kid.
That's nostalgic.
I kindly asked the uncle of the Buddhist tool shop to teach me about rosary.

The shopping street to Shibamata Taishakuten from the train station takes you into an earlier time. It’s a nostalgic walk past tightly built together wooden stores bursting with local crafts, souvenirs, and local treats, along with a few restaurants tucked in to tempt the hungry. If it looks a bit like a movie set that’s no surprise since it has been used for just that.

On the way back from our temple visit we tasted some of the samples on offer and bought several varieties of toasted rice crackers to savor on the way back to Ueno.

The street was crowded on the day we visited and probably is crowded every day. We saw no other Western tourists on the street but it was packed with local visitors.

A pleasant beginning and end to our visit to Shibamata

Taishakuten Sando is a shopping street, which links between Keisei Shibamata station to Taishakuten. There are many old shops, and it is always crowded with visitors. You can certainly feel an air of Showa Period. I don’t know why, but there are several old restaurants which serve Unagi, broiled eel.

This street is the focal point of tourist attention in Shibamata - a charming quaint pedestrianised street lined with wooden buildings, mainly shops and restaurants - with the Taishakuten temple at one end and the railway station at the other, bisected by the main road.

We stayed near this place during our maiden visit to Japan. It is accessible from Shibamata Station (on the Keisei-Kanamachi line). It does not get very crowded often, but does close early. There are several shrines around the area, and some attractions a little further.

寅さん好きにはたまらない場所でしょう。しかし何も知識がなければ小さな商店街です。草団子は美味しかったです。ちょっとした散歩にはいいと思います。

The shopping street was shorter than that of SENSOUJI or Narita-san. There are some shops appearing a movie and the movie fans must be excited.

Skewered mugwort dumplings with seaweed are the famous food of this shop.

This is the shopping street leading up to the Shibamata-Teishakuten. It is a Tokyo Designated Historical Buildings site. It has great historical buildings with plenty of souvenir shops and small restaurants.

This is the shopping street leading up to the Shibamata-Taishakuten. It is a Tokyo Designated Historical Buildings site. There are great old buildings with plenty of souvenir shops and small restaurants. It is easily accessible from Shibamata Station.
