If you’re going to Haneda Airport, stop by Kamata and Ikegami
Close to Haneda Airport, the “town of cinemas” was once the location of Shochiku Kamata Studios, and the area is currently loved as a “town for the common people” with a focus on shopping arcades. In Kamata, the “Kamata West Exit Shopping Street” gives you a chance to sample street foods, “Black Spa” is a traditional-style public bathhouse, and the “Tire Park” is a site for environmentally friendly art. Ikegami Honmonji Temple is a major head temple of the Nichiren school of Buddhism, and the quite Zen atmosphere is truly appealing.
