Dear International Investors,
I used my future plan essay, when I surveyed three apartment buildings in Taito-ku, Arakawa-ku, and Toshima-ku last week. The line is the only streetcar system survived in Tokyo, connecting Waseda (Shinjuku-ku) and Minowabashi (Arakawa-ku). The line has been in operation since 1913, and the neighborhoods and towns along the line still show what Tokyo used to look like in Showa Period (1926-1989). Toden Arakawa Line runs through Shinjuku-ku, Toshima-ku, Kita-ku, and Arakawa-ku, most of these districts being downtown and residential.
Also, Toden Arakawa Line stops at some major stations at which passengers can switch from Toden Arakawa Line to another train line. These stations include Machiya (to Tokyo Metro Chiyoda Line), Oji (to JR Keihintohoku Line), and Otsuka (to JR Yamanote Line).
Toden Arakawa Line is fun to ride and watch. If you can spare sometime for sightseeing in Tokyo, I strongly recommend that you get onto Toden Arakawa Line.
