A pleasant 5-min stroll from Shibamata station takes you to Taishakuten Temple, which was made famous by the "Tora-san" series of movies. A sculpture gallery and large old trees in the precincts are stunning, and a tea house behind the temple treats you with a beautiful garden view.
Another highlight for amblers is a 200m approach lined with shops selling candies, dumplings and salty rice crackers (senbei), some of which date back to the late Edo period. This is the place to taste your way through the food stalls and appreciate retro Tokyo.
