Experience Location

Northern Tokyo offers a dynamic mix of residential neighborhoods, traditional and historic areas, and natural beauty. There, you can find Sugamo, a shopping district that’s affectionately referred to as the “Harajuku for old ladies,” where you can buy their iconic red underwear or enjoy some nibbles at their various shops. Ameya Yokocho (or “Ameyoko”) is another shopping street where you can find a diverse range of street food from all over the world, and stock up on discounted candy. And Ueno Park, which is home to several museums, gardens, and Ueno Zoo, is another fun day trip destination!
