Toei Streetcar (Toden) Arakawa Linemore

Toei Streetcar (Toden) Arakawa Line

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.

This provides the perfect location as the gateway to Kagoshima. On sunny days, head to the rooftop observation deck to watch all sorts of airplanes take off and land, from turboprops to large jets, all backed by magnificent views of the Kirishima mountains.

Check out the retro Eames shell chairs in the domestic departures lobby that make the airport chic.




Sakura-jima, floating in Kinko Bay, is the symbol of Kagoshima. It was previously, as its name suggests, an island (jima = island), but lava flowing from the 1914 Taisho eruption of the island’s volcano filled in the strait between the mainland and the island, and it became part of the Osumi Peninsular. There are around 4,600 people who live on this volcanic island, with its frequent eruptions, and they enjoy the blessings of the volcano, including crops such as the Sakurajima daikon and Sakurajima mandarin oranges, abundant hot springs, and views of mountains and villages.
