Travel Guide - Taishakuten-sando

Travel GuideTravel Guide

Taishakuten-sando is the oldest shopping street in Katsushika Ward, connecting Taishakuten Temple and Shibamata Station. Its charm lies in its atmosphere with a deep sense of humanity - just like in historical movies. Famous local foods include freshwater fish dishes and Mugwort-flavored rice dumplings. This is a great place to stroll while enjoying snacks such as hand-made Dango dumplings and Senbei rice crakers.

instead, the film makes the argument that things aren't that different, that anywhere in the world can be Shibamata w/love and family.

Later, I'll try to transcribe/translate the story Tora says at the end, when he basically tells a Vienna story as if it is Shibamata.
