Photo of the Day – Tokyo’s Tram Line

There used to be lots of tram lines in Tokyo many many years ago.  They were replaced by buses and subways but there still remains one tram line.  Officially it’s called “Toden Arakawa Line“.  Toden means line run by Tokyo metropolitan government.

I found a nice bakery near from Zoshigaya station.

 The name of the bakery is “Oishii Melon-pan” or “Delicious Melon-pan.”  For your information, “melon-pan” is one of the bread many Japanese people love.  You can see their bread if you see their facebook.

Address: 7-13 Zoshigaya 2-chome, Toshima-ku, Tokyo
Opening hours: 10am-7pm

There are several sightseeing spots in this area.  Main sites are Kishibojin Temple and Zoshigaya Cemetery.  Both are within a walking / biking distance and interesting places so I will write about them soon.

Have a look at some of the photos!

Here are photos of Kishibojin and temples / shrines nearby.

Zoshigaya Cemetery hasmany tombs of famous Japanese authors.  It accepts any religions so some of them are graves of Christians, some are Shinto and yet others are Buddhism.
