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.
