One of my favorite things to do is to get on this at Waseda and ride all the way to Minowa. Its like going on a time machine going back in time. Minowa is a very cool old neighborhood with old Tokyo still left.

The tram ride was fantastic and showed a quieter side to busy Tokyo. Just a word of warning, though -- we caught the tram from Waseda on a Saturday morning and it was PACKED. Like, jammed-up-against-a-window-with-one-stranger-wedged-in-your-armpit-and-another-one's-elbow-stuck-in-your-eye kind of crowded. So you may want to pick...More
