Take a ride on Tokyo’s last operating tram to discover Old Tokyo’s Showa-era atmosphere and the forgotten district of Sanya.

Overview

Discover a different side of Tokyo with a ride on Toden Arakawa Line, the last operating tram line in Tokyo. This tram is also known as “Tokyo Sakura Tram” because during springtime, it passes through some amazing cherry blossom trees! Regardless of the time of the year, this old-fashioned ride will take you through some beautiful scenery through shitamachi, old Edo areas of Tokyo where there is a long history, traditional shopping areas, and local temples that have not developed as rapidly as the rest of modern Tokyo. 

We will stop at a few places of interest during our tram ride including local shrines like Kishimojindo and Oji Shrine, and the large shopping district of Sugamo. Sugar is known as the “Harajuku for grannie”’ and is also well known for its lucky red underwear! We will also make a stop at a peaceful waterfall right in the middle of the city. 

Later we will head to the neighbourhood of Sanya, known as a ghetto district with a rich history. During the difficult post-war years, this was where the homeless, manual workers and underdogs of society and daily workers would live and work. This area has changed a lot over the past years but today, it is still a very interesting place to visit. It is an area that is usually skipped by most tourists and is vastly different from other places in Tokyo; in fact, the name Sanya was removed from official records and split into other districts. For anime and manga fans, this area is also the setting of Ashita no Joe. You might recognize some similar scenes from around the neighbourhood. 

Join us to explore off the tourist track and be a local, and discover the rich history of one of Tokyo’s oldest neighbourhoods before it catches up with the rest of modern Tokyo.
