So where is "Shopping street in Sugamo, Toshima-ku "

Where is Sugamo

More information on this;


---
Sugamo was historically a village outside of Edo city and is not a part of shitamachi in its original sense. However, it well retains the very atmosphere of shitamachi. Near from Sugamo JR station there is Koganji Temple. The temple, however, is famous as "Togenuki Jizo" *

I finally reached the topic, Sugamo "Jizo street shopping area", which is a very particular place in Tokyo. The people gathering here are mostly old and middle-aged women. They are really very energetic and look pleasant and cheerful as the young girls in Harajuku or Shibuya.

Especially in the days of 4, 14 and 24 of each month, a special market is held in front of "Togenuki Jizo" and tens of thousands of grandmas gather from Tokyo
