Toei Streetcar (Toden) Arakawa Linemore

Toei Streetcar (Toden) Arakawa Line is a streetcar that runs from Minowa of Taito-ku, a neighborhood that very much retains the Shitamachi (old Tokyo downtown) atmosphere, to Waseda, known as the site of the university by the same name. The gentle ride is so laid back it's hard to believe that this is an actual means of transport in Tokyo.
Visitors can enjoy sights that are well off the beaten track to their hearts' content, including shopping centers, Arakawa Yuen, Asukayama Park, Togenuki Jizoson Kogan-ji Temple, and Kishimojin. Nothing can beat a trip along the Toei Streetcar (Toden) Arakawa Line for those who want a taste of local life.

With an elevation of 1,117 meters, area of 80 square kilometers and circumference of 52 kilometers, Sakura-jima rises from Kinko Bay as a symbol of Kagoshima. It is located within Kirishima-Kinkowan National Park. Sakura-jima was born some 26,000 years ago and has had 17 major eruptions in recorded history. In the past, the volcano stood as an independent island, but lava from the major eruption of the Taisho era in 1914 filled in the strait separating it from the mainland, making it a peninsula. People are able to live here because of the bounty provided from the mountain, including delicious produce such as Sakurajima daikon and Sakurajima Mandarin Oranges as well as the hot springs that rejuvenate people and the beautiful scenery of the mountain and villages, despite volcanic activities such as large eruptions and pyroclastic flows that have damaged the area. Today, about 4,600 people live on Sakura-jima and the daily small-scale eruptions have become a part of life.
