Oshiage Restaurant Guide

Oshiage is adjacent to Bunka in the east, Azuma Bridge in the west, Narihira in the south, and Mukojima in the north. In the first half of the 1900s it prospered as a traditional old-town entertainment district, though there was a feeling of decline in the second half of the century. From 2008, the area has changed dramatically because of large-scale redevelopment. With the construction of the Skytree tower, the name suddenly became known nationally, and in 2012 Skytree Town was inaugurated. At a total height of 634 meters, and with the rooftop at 497 meters, the Skytree fuses traditional Japanese beauty and futuristic design. It sedately watches over the city as a new symbol of Tokyo. Over 50.8 million people visited Skytree In the first year after it opened, well above expectations. Oshiage Station is also known as "Skytree Station", and Azumabashi was renamed "Tokyo Skytree Station". The Tokyo "Sora Machi (Sky Town)" at the foot of the Skytree has also become a popular tourist attraction.The soba restaurant "Kamimura" near Narihira bridge has imitated the Skytree with its popular "Tower Don (Rice Bowl)" as well. This rare treat features three long shrimp tempura standing like towers over the rice.
