Sugamo - Grandma's Cool Shopping Street is Cool for Everyone
Here is the Sugamo shopping street, nickname is "Grandma's Harajyuku". Harajyuku is a one of the coolest shopping street for teenagers. But here, Sugamo's main target is Grandma & Grandpa. Even if you are young, still Sugamo shopping street is interesting place. Feels more local and more close to everyday life in Japan. I love to visit here!
Sugamo shopping street's official character is call "Sugamon". The area's name "Sugamo" literally means "nest of duck" or "duck's nest". So the character is duck. This photo is a post box with the character "Sugamon". It's only in this area.
Sugamo area has tram, small and warm atmosphere. This tram station has Japanese cafe (Left side of the picture, 1st foor of wite building). People can hop in the cafe only 3 steps from the tram. We can enjoy unique scenery, trams running close from the table, with good Japanese sweets and tea.
If you are interested in strolling around here, I'll be happy to show you around!
