If you are visiting Tokyo, go out for a shopping where you can experience the old town feel, just like you travelled back to mid 1900s.

America Yokocho also known as “Ameyoko” is located near Ueno station. You can walk around, grab a bite, and stroll around and you might find something unexpectedly.

If you like to get in depth with Japanese culture, rent a kimono and stroll around the town of Asakusa. There’s even rickshaw available for a nice breezy ride!

Sugamo Jizo Dori (巣鴨地蔵通り)

Sugamo Jizo Dori is known as a town of elderly and this is actually true. If you step your foot in the street, there are many elderly people enjoying shopping. However, it doesn’t mean that it’s not for the young people. There are many restaurants that offer cheap but delicious set meal.
