A real old Tokyo. Some of the buildings are clearly 19th century. Lots of temples with very interesting statues. A sculptor/architect museum Asakura Choso is a great palce to visit, very philosophical; unfortunately it's under renovations till 2013 I believe. Nearby there is a great street market - I think it was on Saturday that I strolled through it. Overall, it is a nice and cozy neighborhood to spend half a day hiking through, small museums and shops, and temples and old Edo's architecture, the only down side, if you are picky about it - lots of cemeteries around, no wonder, it's a real old part of town.
