    Second Hand Fashion in Shimokitazawa

    by cgutierrez Written Nov 6, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Shimokitazawa is an area frequented by the college-age crowd. By walking around the densely populated shopping area, you'll notice the crowd here is stylish, but in a manner totally different from the typical fashions you'll find in Shinjuku, Shinbuya, Ginza or Harajuku. Most of the young adults here buy their clothes from the second hand clothing stores found all around this district and some may even modify their findings to suit their style.

    Take a walk around and poke your head into a few of the second hand stores many are on the basement-level so keep a good eye out. Many stores will have their own specialties in the type of clothes they carry, but if you are open-minded you may be able to find something amazing. Observe the stylish people walking around the district to take some cues about how you can repurpose a second-hand buy into a fashion forward outfit.

    Upon exiting the Shimokitazawa station walk straight out veering to the right and you will find yourself at the entrance of the main shopping area.

    by cinfulmocha Written Aug 13, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tokyo is not just skyscrapers and noisy streets. Most travellers have missed the "***amachi" area, which means 'the old downtown'. @Shibamata, can best represents the "***amachi", is inside Katsushika ward. It was set as the background of famous drama "Otoko wa Tsurai yo" - or 'It's tough being a man', starring Kiyoshi Atsumi as Tora-san. This drama is very popular and favored by Japanese.
    The shops and streets in Shibamata have a traditional feel, represents the Edo-period atmosphere.
    When you visit Shibamata, please don't forget to try 'dango' - rice cake ball stuffed with red bean paste skewer.

    *Access to Shibamata*
    Keisei Shibamata Station - 3 minutes on the Kanamachi Line from Keisei Takasago station.
    Hokuso Shin-Shibamata - 2 minutes on the Hokuso Line from Keisei Takasago station.

    Museums at Ueno Park

    by victorwkf Written Dec 29, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Most of the museums in Tokyo are at the Ueno Park, namely the Tokyo National Museum, National Science Museum, Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum and Ueno no-mori Art Museum. There is even a zoo and an aquarium at Ueno Park. To get here, take the subway (Ginza Line) and alight at the Ueno Station, which is one of the bigger subway stations in Tokyo. The museums and Ueno Park are just near to this subway station. Try to avoid the weekends as it will be very crowded with local people.

    Lake in Tokyo

    by victorwkf Written Dec 5, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are looking for a lake in the heart of Tokyo to relax, the best place would be the big lake at the famous Ueno Park(just next to the Ueno sub-way station). The lake is located at a corner portion of the park where there are many small shrines. In fact, there are 2 lakes, one of them for recreational activities such as boating whereas another one is full of beautiful lotus flowers. Many old folks can be seen relaxing at the benches along the lake, and there are many birds here as well.
