Nestled in a city known for being at the forefront of modernity and advancement is Tokyo's shitamachi (downtown), a set of areas that preserve the nostalgic atmosphere of eras gone by. While the rest of Tokyo developed and modernized at a rapid pace, these downtown areas have remained virtually unchanged from the 1980s.

Go off the beaten tourist path and get a taste of nostalgia and old-world Tokyo as you visit Tateishi and Shibamata. Take in the timeworn appearances of these little pockets of Tokyo, hidden away in a bubble untouched by the rapid changes of modernization.

Enjoy face-to-face communication as well as local foods!
