SpotJizo Dori Shopping Street

The front approach to the Togenuki Jizo Temple from Sugamo Station (about 800 meters) is Jizo Dori Street. The street is always bustling with a lively crowd even on weekdays. Compared to Shinjuku and Shibuya, the average age of the people who come here is a little higher and the area is also known as "The Harajuku of Elderly Ladies." Fairs are conducted on the 4th, 14th, and the 24th of every month, and about 200 stalls are opened. In Sugamo, shiodaifuku, or salty bean paste rice cakes that exhibit an exquisite balance between sweet bean paste and salt, are very popular. You should not miss rice crackers and monaka (bean-jam-filled wafers), either. When you buy something, you will be able to enjoy some pleasant interchange with the staff at the shops. You can find a more easygoing Tokyo here, which is "laid back" and relaxed compared to many other districts of the metropolis.
