SHITAMACHI -- can be traslated as Shita (DOWN) & Machi (TOWN) or Downtown. When you hear Tokyo we usually think of tall buildings and High-Tech areas. But there are still many traditional areas in Tokyo.


In SHITAMACHI you'll still find the old Edo cultures, no famous tourist spots, lifestyle is very slow, old houses and old peoples and old fashioned SHITAMACHI life style.


JR Koiwa Station is about 30 minutes by the Yokosuka Line from Tokyo Station.


OR you may want to see the other side
