Aesthetic Setagaya with a Local

Take a relaxing urban walk to Sangenjaya station, and find your own hidden gems along the Setagaya Line; one of a few existing trams in Tokyo.

You will realize that how much the locals are proud of their small cozy town with quiet yet lovely, peaceful atmosphere.


The spots we visit are;
■Yamashita Shotengai
- pass along the narrow shopping street while filling your mouth with some snacks

■Setagaya Hachimangu Shrine
- a shrine which has a sumo wrestling ring

■Gotokuji Temple
- a temple famous for having uncountable beckoning cat statues! You can buy and put your own cats on the shelf, so that your wishes will come true

■Shoinjinja Shrine
- a shrine dedicated to a samurai, Yoshida Shoin; He devoted himself to educate the youth by establishing a private school

■Carrot Tower
This symbol of the town, the Carrot Tower has an amazing free observatory on the 26th floor; we might be able to see the Mt. Fuji! Well if not, relish in the picturesque scenery of Tokyo while gazing at the gorgeous setting sun.

Identity Verified

I am a 25 year old nationally licensed tour guide in Japan.
I love art, design, fashion, vintage clothings, Scandinavian designs, taking photos, and having good coffee.

"Tokyo Hidden Gems", a community I established has now 440 members.
I have been fortunate enough to have opportunities to visit 33 out of 47 prefectures in Japan since I was a child, thanks to my parents who are passionate travelers, which has raised my interests in traveling and let me work in the tourism industry after graduation.
I have experiences of working at a stylish hostel, and at the largest travel agency in Japan.
