Minami-Senju Restaurant Guide

Minami-Senju is located in the easternmost part of Arakawa, Tokyo. Kita-Senju, in the same Senju area, is located in Adachi, Tokyo, across the Sumida River. In the Edo era Minami-Senju was at the northern edge of the city of Edo, so the Kozuka-mura criminal execution grounds, and the Yoshiwara red-light district, drifted away from the city center to this area. Due to the convenience of water transportation on the Sumida River, from the Meiji era onwards large-scale factories were constructed one after the other, supporting the modernization of Japan. In addition to Edo culture, this area also developed its own unique culture, and traditional festivals or events are held here, such as the prominent Tokyo festival Tenno-sai. An area that feels like a traditional old-town district, and still has a strong Showa-retro atmosphere. Currently the area is being redeveloped, and with the building of a new commercial complex at the east exit of the station, it is being reborn as a new residential area. Again due to the opening of the Tsukuba Express, the station has been refurbished, giving it a safer and more pleasant image.In 2007, Shioiri Park was completed by the side of the Sumida River as one of Tokyo's premier parks.The usual fare on offer from the numerous eateries include reasonably priced "motsu nikomi", and Minamisenju-style monjayaki called "bottara".
