Sakura is located 30 minutes by train from Narita Airport and approximately 1 hour from central Tokyo. Although it is not a convenient location, the National Museum of Japanese History is located in Sakura. Thanks to the well-designed exhibits, you can learn more deeply about Japan's history and culture. Sakura also has castle ruins and restored samurai residences, allowing you to imagine the era when samurai lived.

A Fantastic Day in Tokyo

Tokyo

You want to experience Izakaya like locals? Are you a little reluctant to drink in Shinjuku Kabukicho or the youth town of Shibuya? If so, I recommend Ginza, Yurakucho area! The area has some different profiles. There are deep izakaya alleys underneath the JR railways that retain a postwar atmosphere and also high-end streets where the district became first westernized after the Edo period. You can enjoy 2 very different types of drinking spots while touching about the history.

Shitamachi literally means "downtown", but it is a Japanese term often used to describe old traditional towns located in Eastern Tokyo. The famous Shitamachi areas include Asakusa, Yanaka, Fukagawa, and more. In this tour, I feature Fukagawa. We visit Fukagawa Fudoson temple, Tomioka Hachimangu Shrine (not in Kamakura), Fukagawa Edo Museum, and Kiyosumi Garden. You can also enjoy town strolling in the Shitamachi atmosphere.

During the Edo period, Nihonbashi was the starting point of the Five Roads that connected Tokyo with other areas, a place where a fish market was held, and a town of merchants. Many long-established stores still exist. Let's explore authentic Japanese souvenirs in Nihonbashi.
