Nippori Station is located in Taito-ku, an old working-class neighborhood of Tokyo. Lately, it's been really gaining in popularity because of a renewed interest in Tokyo's old-fashion town-scape and traditional way of life. You'll see many beautiful old wooden houses along charming mom and pop stores. An interesting thing to do there is to go around the cafes in the area. Most of them retain the quaintness of the area yet are tastefully renovated and offer very original quality products. Here are 5 cafes you should try out!
Yanaka is an amazing old "shitamachi" (working-class) neighborhood in Eastern Tokyo. Not nearly as popular as others such as Asakusa, but absolutely worth the go! You'll feel the nostalgia of old Tokyo.
