Take a relaxing urban walk to Sangenjaya station, and find your own hidden gems along the Setagaya Line; one of a few existing trams in Tokyo. You will realize that how much the locals are proud of their small cozy town with quiet yet lovely, peaceful atmosphere. The spots we visit are; 1. Yamashita Shotengai (local shopping street) - pass along the narrow shopping street while filling your mouth with some snacks; I recommend you to try roasted sweet potatoes! 2. Setagaya Hachimangu Shrine - a shrine which has a sumo wrestling ring 3. Old Tram Car Monument 4. Gotokuji Temple - a temple famous for having uncountable beckoning cat statues! You can buy and put your own cats on the shelf, so that your wishes will come true. 5. Shoinjinja Shrine - a shrine dedicated to a samurai, Yoshida Shoin. He devoted himself to educate the youth by establishing a private school! 5. Local cafe - as a coffee lover, I can take you to one of my favorite cafes, which serves very good coffee! Let’s have a chat and you will be a true local :) 6. Carrot Tower Once the cute colorful tram arrives at Sangenjaya, let's go to the symbol of the town; the Carrot Tower. It has an amazing free observatory on the 26th floor, my favorite secret place. If we are lucky, we might be able to see the Mt. Fuji! Well if not, relish in the picturesque scenery of Tokyo while gazing at the gorgeous setting sun.
I am a 25 year old nationally licensed tour guide & one of the youngest Airbnb experience hosts in Japan. I love art, design, fashion, vintage clothings, Scandinavian designs, taking photos, and having good coffee. "Tokyo Hidden Gems", a community I established has now 440 members. I have been fortunate enough to have opportunities to visit 33 out of 47 prefectures in Japan since I was a child, thanks to my parents who are passionate travelers, which has raised my interests in traveling and let me work in the tourism industry after graduation. I have experiences of working at a stylish hostel, and at the largest travel agency in Japan.

A cup of tea/ coffee/ special drink at a cafe
Let's meet up at Gotokuji station and explore the hidden gems around; shrines, a temple, and Setagaya Castle park. On our way, we can stop by a cafe if you'd like - I would say I'm a coffee-addict and love to spend my time in a local & quiet cafe, so I'll take you to my favorite one! We'll split up after we get to the top of Carrot Tower, lovely orange tower.
