Private Tour - A Walk around the Edo Post Station Town in Senju

Visit Senju, a historic Japanese town little known to tourists!<br><br>Kitasenju is rising in popularity as a town people want to live in. People have gathered in this town since the Edo Period (1603-1868) as it used to be a post station town; a town where travelers came to rest. <br><br>Kitasenju was the door step of Tokyo to the North of Japan. For this reason, old warehouses, traditional houses and sento bathhouses are scattered around the town, making it a great place to get a glipmse of Japanese history. <br><br>Enjoy a day exploring the town, visiting shrines, renovated warehouses and traditional houses used as cafes and also the only market in Tokyo that specializes purely in fish. Bathe in a bathhouse and drink sake in an izakaya at the end of the tour!

I love visiting supermarkets in foreign countries. I find nothing really helps you get to know the culture of a place like being in with the locals and shopping for everyday things. I have found unusual and amazing things at times in the local supermarket. However, because some travellers don't see it as a 'proper' holiday experience, the humble supermarket is rarely reviewed online and often ridiculously hard to find unless you speak the local language. After 7 years travelling in Japan, I have finally found 4 brands of supermarket. I found one on my first trip (Max Valu), the second a whole 5 years later (Donki hote) and the last 2 on my previous trip in 2017 (Ito Yokado and Life pronounced laifu). Japan is so discrete that supermarkets are hard to find. It took me years to learn to differentiate between the supermarket and the pachinko parlour. Supermarkets vary hugely between cities and between brands. I found the Ito Yokado in Takenotsuka a really interesting experience in getting to know Tokyo outside the boundary of the Yamanote line. This is obviously a local shopping district with things you don't normally get to see as a tourist. There is also an amazing indian restaurant round the corner which I will also review. It is also a short taxi ride from a second hand shop specialising in children's clothing which was an amazing accidental find and a great way to get cool japanese toys at a fraction of the price but in as new condition. I visited this Ito Yokado to get some of the fun or uniquely japanese foods to eat at my airbnb and to take home e.g. Blu syrup for putting on shaved ice - no longer available at home because of the artificial colouring and flavouring XD. It is also a doable taxi ride to the Toneri park which is great for a walk and picnic. Although for a faster picnic take the toneri liner to Ogi-Ohashi station, get your picnic from the Life/Lifu supermarket right next to the station, and then get back on before getting off at Toneri Koen station to stroll through the park and have a great picnic. The park has great playgrounds for children and is a fun trip for all ages. I really enjoyed this shop and this area for getting to know everyday tokyo.
