  • Overview You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: Shimizu77  

    Asakusa is the heart of Shitamachi, the quarter best-beloved of that fractious, gossipy, prodigal population called the Edokko, who trace their “Downtown” roots back at least three generations.

  • Edokko people of Shitamachi You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: Shimizu77  

    The Edokko are suckers for sentimentality and for ninjo; the web of small favors and kindness that bind them together.

    Sneeze in the middle of the night and your Edokko neighbor will demand the next morning that you take better care of yourself; stay home with a fever and she will be over by noon with a bowl of soup.

    An Edokko craftsman would rather lose a commission that takes any foolish talk from a customer who doesn’t know good work then he sees it.

    Edokko quarrel in a language all their own, an earthy local dialect as profane and expressive as Brooklynese.

    Ignore the proprieties- or offend the pride of an Edokko- and he will let you know about it in no uncertain terms; respect his sense of values and you make a friend for life.

      You should not neglect the National Museum of Western Art. This is located on the east side of Ueno park; and outstanding collection of French Impressionist paintings, print and drawings, the gift of a wealthy businessman named Kojiro Matsukata.

      The building itself was designed by Le Corbusier; the Rodin sculptures in the courtyard- the Gate of Hell, the Thinker, and the magnificent Burghers of Calais-are authentic castings from the original molds.

    • Ueno
      North of the city center, Ueno was chosen in 1628 by the Tokugawa Shugun Hidetaka as the site of a vast temple complex. Called Kan’eiji, it was established on the area’s one prominent hill to protect the capital from evil spirits. Kan’eiji was a seat of great power until 1868 when it became the battleground in the shogunate’s last stand against the imperial army and most of the buildings were destroyed.

      Subsequently, Ueno was turned into Tokyo’s first public park, endowed with all the preferred Western improvements: museums, concert halls, a library, a university of fine arts and a zoo. Undo Should be a stop on any visitor’s itinerary – especially if you happen to be here in mid- April, when the cherry blossoms in the park are glorious.

    • Kiyomizu Kannon-dō
      The Kiyomizu Kannon Hall, modeled after the larger and more famous Kiyomizu temple in Kyoto; registered as a National Treasure, this is one of the few buildings that survived the battle of 1868 intact, When this area called Ueno was the battleground in the shogunate’s last stand against the imperial army and most of the buildings were destroyed.

    • Imperial Palace
      If Tokyo can be said to have any center at all, this is it. Today’s Imperial Palace is on the site of Edo castle, where the Tokugawa shogunate ruled Japan for 265 years; it was thereafter home to the emperors of the modern era.

      The palace was almost totally destroyed in the air raids of World War II, then rebuilt in ferroconcrete. This is the least interesting part of what was once the largest system of fortifications in the world, and in any case you can’t get in to see it.

      What you can see are the lovely grounds of the East Garden, the moat and massive stone ramparts, and those few examples of classic Japanese architecture – gates bridges armories, and watchtowers – that have survived since the 17th century.

    • Ginza
      Tokyo’s best-known district is named after a silver mint originally located here. Once the epitome of ehic, Ginza has lost many of its smartest young shoppers to the fashion boutiques of districts like Omotesando and Daikanyama, but the area is still fascinating.
