TOKYO

Tokyo Stationmore

October 2012 saw completion of the preservation and renovation work on the Tokyo Station Marunouchi Building. The red brick facade long loved as the symbol of Tokyo Station has made a comeback, along with the history and grandeur of the original building dating nearly a hundred years back. The occasion also saw the reopening of Tokyo Station Hotel and Tokyo Station Gallery. The former is the only hotel situated within an important cultural property of Japan. The interior is designed in a sophisticated, classical European style to blend with the splendor of the Marunouchi Building exterior.

Toei Streetcar (Toden) Arakawa Linemore

RECOMMENDED DESTINATIONS

Toei Streetcar (Toden) Arakawa Line is a streetcar that runs from Minowa of Taito-ku, a neighborhood that very much retains the Shitamachi (old Tokyo downtown) atmosphere, to Waseda, known as the site of the university by the same name. The gentle ride is so laid back it's hard to believe that this is an actual means of transport in Tokyo.
Visitors can enjoy sights that are well off the beaten track to their hearts' content, including shopping centers, Arakawa Yuen, Asukayama Park, Togenuki Jizoson Kogan-ji Temple, and Kishimojin. Nothing can beat a trip along the Toei Streetcar (Toden) Arakawa Line for those who want a taste of local life.

Ningyochomore

Amazake Alley is the small approximately 400-meter long street extending from the Amazake Yokocho Intersection just outside Ningyocho Station to Meijiza. It was given the name "Amazake Alley" because there used to be a shop selling amazake (sweet sake) at the entrance to the alley during the early Meiji Period. Even now amazake is sold at the many sake, Japanese-style confectionary, and other shops, and many people love walking down this alley to experience the Shitamachi (old Tokyo downtown) atmosphere.
