What to Expect
This tour visits various spots along the Setagaya Line, trams that run at 18km per hour through a residential area just west of Shibuya. With a one-day ticket of just 330 yen, you can get on and off the tram at any station as much as you like.
Gotokuji - a buddhist temple known as Lucky Cat Temple; the highlight of this tour. Countless ceramic cats will welcome you.
Daikan Yashiki - a mansion of a powerful farmer family commissioned to govern the area by a feudal lord. Here you can have a chance to glimpse a traditional Japanese house.
Shoin Jinja - a shinto shrine dedicated to a great samurai intellectual at the end of samurai period who educated youngsters, many of whom later became important figures of a government of modern Japan.
Shoin Jinja shopping mall - stroll around a shopping mall which is a mixture of old and new. Buy a yummy croquet from a meat shop, try sweet fermented rice drink at an amazingly small shop or chat with a very friendly shopkeeper of a candy/snack shop - it's fun to explore this place!
Karasuyamagawa Ryokudo - take a leisurely walk along a walking trail that runs among houses. Can you imagine it was once a small river?
