About your host

Learnt sketching in Sydney for 4 years, I've been a tutor in Sydney and Tokyo for 1 years, running my class 'tokyosketchbooks'. I love to create something - I have National Japanese chef licence, too ! I enjoyed living overseas for 10 years in total, so this time, I decided to contribute to my absolute local area which always welcome me when I came back, by using my skills.

What we’ll do

Although Tokyo Skytree attracts tourists, as one of local residents for 20 years, I would like to contribute to cheer up old parts of Oshiage where local small business are wanting to be supported. After leaving Oshiage station, we walk through backstreets like a maze, popping in a local shrine, we go to a nostalgic shopping street of a history of about 90 years. We'll stop at two small cafes…

Where you'll be

A nostalgic atmosphere of old Tokyo still remains in Oshiage-Mukojima area we explore. We visit a lovely little shrine, Tobiki shrine, and sit at a couple of local cafes including a `Kominka café' which means a café using an old house. We also go to a local post office to send the postcards.
