Tourist Information Center

Run by the Katsushika Tourist Association, Shibamata Tourist Information Center is located just a minute away on foot from Keisei Kanamachi Line’s Shibamata Station, heading towards Taishakuten. We recommend visiting here upon arrival in Shibamata.
Obtain various tourist pamphlets and receive information about Shibamata’s tourist attractions, in order to get a good grasp of its whereabouts and plan a route. The staff are all friendly, and there is always an English-speaking interpreter on hand to help.
Despite its small size, the center sells plenty of souvenirs. The selection ranges from goods based on the theme of Shibamata’s icon, Tora-san of “The Otoko wa tsurai yo (It’s Tough Being a Man)”, to traditional Japanese handicrafts such as the “Edo Kiriko” glass made locally in Katsushika City.

    之前自助行來到了柴又這個地方,目的是為了阿兩雕像合照,案內所不是很大小小的,很怕語言不通不曉得怎麼溝通,幸好裡面有會說英文的服務人員態度相當的親切,經由一番說明之後終於讓我完成此次旅遊的目的,非常感謝🙏

    柴又观光导览所距离车站特别近,门口的寅次郎雕像好可爱。里面有好多小册子可以随便拿,还有好多琳琅满目的周边商品和当地土特产。因为要走好多路所以打算回程时再买,可惜又给忘了。下次再来时还会来看看的。
