Shibamata, widely known as the setting for the Otoko wa Tsurai yo (It's tough being a man) movies, with the shitamachi downtown atmosphere remaining as it was in the movies. Shibamata Taishakuten temple has striking architecture, such as the Taishaku-do hall and the Hon-do main hall, that bustles with people during the Koshin Day festival. The sando shopping street has many historical buildings dating back to 1912, and it is recommended that you walk the street while eating homemade kusa (grass) dumplings and rice crackers. There is a statue of Tora-san, the main character from the movies, in front of the train station, and you can find the set materials used to film the movies at the Katsushika Shibamata Tora-San Museum. At the Edo River nearby, you can still board the only Edo-era ferry in Tokyo at the Yagiri no Watashi crossing.
