In Kameari, an area very close to Shibamata, there is a giant shopping center called “Ario Kameari”. Enjoy a whole day of shopping, savoring gourmet food, and watching a variety of events held here.

On weekends, a shuttle bus from the neighborhood of Asakusa, where Kaminarimon is located, serves Kameari Station. By going a little bit further, you can drop into Asakusa for some sightseeing.
