This series "Tokyo Walk" aims to show you unique Tokyo neighbourhoods. Each episode features a train station and a district surrounding it. Monnaka is only 3 km (1.8 miles) east of the remarkable Tokyo station but it has a completely different atmosphere. Monnaka is known as “shitamachi” which means a lower city and describes laid-back neighbourhoods with nostalgic charms associated with the common people’s culture. Time seems to be much slower there. Monnaka is a perfect spot to see the everyday lives of the Japanese. Let's enjoy exploring small alleyways, visiting local temples, and getting a feel of what life is really like in Tokyo! What we will see; ☑️ Old drinking alleys ☑️ Where locals shop and hang out ☑️ Fukagawa fudo temple & Tomioka hachiman shrine
Eriko has been sharing her love of Japanese culture with people around the globe since 2017. In her words, Japan is beautiful, unique, and weird all at the same time! She's been lucky to have traveled to dozens of amazing countries and she got a chance to live overseas, in Australia and Canada, for a couple of years. Being exposed to other cultures has given her a new lens to look at her hometown and its traditions. Her great-grandfather was a kimono craftsman in Tokyo, and today she is honoured to wear the kimonos that were passed down through generations. She is looking forward to exploring Japan and sharing a smile with you!
