Fukagawa is a neighbourhood that invites you to travel.
A few blocks across the Sumida River, not far from Nihonbashi, we find ourselves in an old working-class neighbourhood. Small boats pass through the locks and sail on the canal where passers-by rest. The atmosphere is reminiscent of the Canal Saint Martin in Paris.
Seagulls fly in the sky and a plane flies low. Airport buses drive along the urban highway that runs alongside the canal. Fukagawa is a place where you feel a bit far from home.
