The approach to the Temple

Katsushika Shibamata has been chosen by the country itself as one of Japan’s iconic scenic spots. It’s also no exaggeration to say that Shibamata Taishakuten and its approach are iconic parts of Tokyo’s shitamachi (old town) areas that possess striking atmosphere and appearance. It’s also famous as the hometown of Tora, the protagonist of the film “The Otoko wa tsurai yo (It’s Tough Being a Man),” directed by Japanese film master YAMADA Yoji. There is so much to see in the area, such as the “Katsushika Shibamata Tora-san Museum” and “Yamada Yoji Museum” that bring you into the world of the film, as well as the elegant “Yamamoto-tei,” which was renovated between late Taisho era and early Showa era, and “Shibamata Taishakuten Daikyo-ji Temple,” an iconic landmark of the area. Every 60 days comes a “Koshin” day, during which Shibamata Taishakuten holds a temple festival, as it has done since back in the Edo period. The carrying of a matoi, or decorated standard, on “Yoi Koshin” (the eve of Koshin) is a must-see event. The large Koshin paper lanterns placed in front of Shibamata Taishakuten’s Niten-mon Gate add an air of elegance to the area.

    接近傍晚的時候去,氣氛環境很好參道,路上沒什麼人。

    因為一部日本老電影,處處都有寅次郞的身影。

  • 蔡義忠

    我很喜歡這種老街的感覺,而且從出車站開始整個主題都圍繞寅次郞主人公,在參道上可以看到一整排傳統木造建築和石板所鋪設的街道,一些傳統庶民小吃烤仙貝、草團子,還有濃濃的人情味這也是日本昭和時代的文化,有主題、有故事、有文化來到這裡我覺得收穫非常豐富

    可以很骄傲地说我看过系列电影《男人真命苦》的所有作品,这条参拜道路对于我来说简直太熟悉了。可使当我走在这条参道上时却觉得有点像做梦,竟然会环顾左右寻找阿樱骑着自行车的身影。虽然和电影里的场景有些不同,但依然能感受到那种充满人情味的下町气氛。打算下次找一个柴又帝释天的缘日来凑凑热闹(*^_^*)。

    參道上有許多具有多年歴史的老店鋪,走在路上就可以聞到濃濃香氣四溢的蒲鰻燒,配上白米飯及香甜蜜秘製醬汁真的很好吃,還有葛飾名物「艾草團子」,團子上面蓋著厚厚的紅豆餡泥,吃在嘴𥚃淡淡艾草香氣甜而不膩,走在柴又老街需要細細品嚐美食、仔細觀察老街建築以及人、事、物的美

    從上野出發只要30分鐘就可以抵達,參道上面有許多歷史悠久的老店舖,有些甚至都有百年歷史,推薦~烤仙貝、鰻魚飯是不能錯過的,還有類似小時候經常去的柑仔店懷舊零食,感受日本昭和年代的文化背景

  • 方梅庭

    昭和時期懷舊風建築以及濃濃的人情味,加上電影「男人真命苦」的加持,是東京的必到景點之一
