Arakawa

We were woken early in the morning by a loud screeching sound, looking outside a truck had got stuck on the highway median. It took them several hours to get him unstuck.

We headed out to the visit the Arakawa area of Tokyo. We walked through Waseda University and then rode the only remaining streetcar in Tokyo. There were plenty of people photographing the train, inside and out.

Once in Arakawa, it had an old showa-era feel. The shopping arcade was lively. From Arakawa we walked to Nezu.

A very narrow house next to the train tracks in Arakawa.

We had dinner at the recently remodeled Mitsukoshi Department store in Ginza. It has a nice roof garden area. We at the Minoru Diner, it was very good – with organic ingredients.
