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.

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.
