There is a shopping district about 30 meters north of the station. The croquet bread (110 yen) sold at Oomura bakery is recommended, it used to be our favorite fast food everywhere in Japan till 30 years ago.
@Here the Arakawa line crosses with the Keisei line. If You are lucky, you can see the express train named "Skyliner" running to the Narita airport from Ueno station on this elevated truck.
"Yuenchi" means an amusement park, and this one is nice. Admittance is only 180 yen and most rides cost 200 yen for each(100 yen for children), but the park is not cheap in quality at all. It's not crowded usually, you don't have to wait in a line for hours.You can touch real goat in the zoo.

@The popular healing temple "Kouganji" or "Togenuki-Jizou" is near this station. A lot of sick old people gather here specially on the 4th, 14th and 24th of every month. They water on the Jizou (stone statue) while rubbing their diseased parts. This action is believed to heal them.
Most people gathering here on those days seem to be over 70 years old. This is rather an interesting place because those who are under 50 may be proud of being young while others can also be proud of being old.
The streets and shops are very crowded on those 4, 14, 24th days. So choose other days if you are weak or irritable.
Zoushigaya Cemetry is located to the east of the Zoushigaya station. Unlike other Japanese graveyards attached to Buddhist temples, this is a Tokyo Metropolitan cemetry. You will see a Japanese tradition of worshipping our ancestors.
The Tokyo Somemonogatari Museum
"Somemonogatari" is consist of two Japanese words, "some" (say like"so"-"may") is a word meaning dyeing and "monogatari" means a story.
Open hours: 10 am ~ 12 noon, and 1 pm ~ 4 pm (monday through friday)
Cross the nearest bridge over the Kanda river and turn left, then walk along it for 5 minutes. You will not miss the museum building because it stands by the river. This museum was founded and is run by a certain dyeing company to preserve and make known the traditinal Japanese dyeing technique.
You can ask the manager of this museum to explain about its exhibits. He says foreigners seemed more interested in this old technique than Japanese visitors, but we haven't confirmed yet if he would guide foreign visitors in English.
Attention: You have to take you shoes off to enter the museum. So, be careful about the smell of your socks.
"Waseda" is a terminal station of the "TODEN" Arakawa line.
We have recommended some good places to visit on this line, but you willfind lot more interesting places as you get around without specific@destinations. Since there is no very dangerous zone along the line, just
relax and enjoy Tokyo's last remaining streetcar.
The fare is 160 yen flat (80 yen for under 12 years old passengers). It may be convenient for sightseers to buy the one-day pass from the conductor which costs 400 yen (200 yen for under 12).
