SASAZUKA / 笹塚
I don’t know where I got the figure from – and please don’t quote me on it – but think I read one time that including metro and overland trains there are 924 stations in Tokyo. Whatever the true figure is, it surely can’t be too far off. Even after living in Tokyo for over three years there are still whole train lines that are completely unknown to me. Each station is essentially the heart of a little village or town – and while there is no way I will be able to visit all of these little (and big) stations, I want to try and photograph as many areas as I can while I’m living here. First up is Sasazuka on the Keio line which is just a ten-minute walk from my house.

I absolutely love your blog; it makes me want to go back to Japan.
Thanks for checking out the blog and the kind comment 🙂 When were you last here and where did you go?
I was there in 2009 and went to Fukuoka, Kyoto, Magome and Tsumago, Nara, Kinosaki and Tokyo. Only 2 1/2 weeks but it was brilliant.
Amazing! You saw so much. I actually lived in Fukuoka for one year when I was 22 in 2003 – it’s a great city. I wanna go back too!
Thank you for these amazing photos! I really love the atmosphere.
Thanks for checking out the site! 🙂
