TRIP&TRAVEL - JAPAN - TOKYO

The capital of Japan, where the chaos intertwines: Shinjuku with its towering skyscrapers, the sophisticated Ginza district, the otaku culture hub Akihabara, as well as Koenji, and Asakusa with its Edo-era atmosphere.

Tokyo old town bicycle stroll #01
Collecting “Goshuin” (temple or shrine stamps)  in the Yanesen area of oldtown Tokyo-Yanaka, Nezu, and Sendagi.

Nice to meet you. My name is Shitamachi Kombu, born and raised in the old town area of Tokyo. I’m what you might call a third-generation Edokko (it’s said that if you live in Tokyo for three generations, you’re considered an Edokko, while if you live in Yokohama for three days, you’re considered a Hamakko). In this column, I’ll be exploring the down-to-earth neighborhoods known as “Shitamachi” in Tokyo by rental bike and sharing the charm of these areas with you. Please enjoy these casual reports.
