I have had the opportunity to live in Tokyo three different times: as an Expat's kid, as poor student and as young professional. I took my daughter to Tokyo and we rode the Toei Toden Arakawa Line. It was truly a journey back in time....More

Great for those who want to discover a quiet Tokyo. Not in Sakura blossom or Autumn, but people's daily lives in the hot summer here remind me of my childhood. With 400 yens, you can buy one-day ticket and be able to check-in and check-out...More
