If you’re going to Haneda Airport, stop by Kamata and Ikegami

Tokyo >

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.
