This is a small village, famous for a Japanese film series called Tora-San, which will be unfamiliar to foreign visitors. However, the shopping centre has Edo period buildings, which are very attractive and house some quite good restaurants. There is also the Daikjoji temple complex,...More

Shibamata is a long way from shinjuku even by four train rides but worth it when you get there. Mini shopping arcades selling tourist goods and plenty of traditional Japanese foods or snacks to trial. At the end of the shopping track is the traditional...More
