So, I headed into town on my day off, and chose to tread a familiar path. I haven't been this way for a while, but it is a route I know well; off the train at Nippori, and just wander through the back streets to Nezu and beyond. Wherever the fancy takes. Whichever backstreet you take, there is something to catch the eye. There are temples in all directions around here, plus there are one or two other notable sites, like quirky (and busy) old style shopping street, Yanaka Ginza. Definitely worth a couple of hours of anyone's time.
