Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Shibamata Taishakuten (Taishakuten Daikyoji Temple), 7-10-3 Shibamata, Katsushika 125-0052 Tokyo Prefecture

This gorgeous Buddhist Temple, also known as Daikyo-ji Temple, stands in the end of the main road we stroll together. Once entered into its precincts you will be surely smitten by the old and austere atmosphere of the complex.

Among others, you will see the ancient Zuiryu no matsu ancient pine tree, and the outstanding wooden buddhist carvings of this temple.

Stop At: Suikeien, 7-10-3 Shibamata, Katsushika 125-0052 Tokyo Prefecture

Within the Taishakuten Temple, next we will visit the Suikeien Gardens, a hidden gem among the traditional gardens of Tokyo. Perhaps due to the relative remoteness from the center of the Japanese capital, this garden still retains a mood of exclusivity and tranquility.

Stop At: Yabuchu, 7-chōme-7-8 Shibamata, Katsushika City, Tōkyō-to 125-0052, Japan

Since we are in Shibamata, the town of Tora-san, what about a "Tora-san lunch set?" In one of the most old family run restaurants in the area you are going to enjoy their famous soba and tempura set!

After our lunch we are going to pay a visit to the pretty Yamamoto-tei, the former residence of Yamamoto Einosuke, one of the earliest Japanese photographers. This venue has been enriched by a Japanese garden, and you can have your cup of green tea while laying your eyes at the carps of the garden's pond.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Yagiri no Watashi, Shimoyakiri, Matsudo, Chiba 271-0096, Japan

In our last "adventure" of our Shibamata tour, we are tasting a round trip on the "Yagiri no watashi", one of the few remaining river crossing in Tokyo. This boat in a few minutes will take you from the "city" side of Tokyo to the "countryside" side of Chiba Prefecture, and the contrast between the two sides is just unbelievable! This is really where Tokyo ends!
