If you are in Tokyo, which ward do you live in?

Postby I-samu » Sun 02.26.2006 6:59 am

Whenever I go to Japan, I stay with my family.
Most of them live in Nerima, but some of them live right in the middle of the Happy Road Oyama Shopping mall, in Oyama, over an arcade. I also have some family in Okinawa, but I've only met them once when I was about.. 7

If you live in Tokyo, where do you stay?
Do you like it?

I couldn't stand living in Tokyo. It's just a giant, oppressive mass of concrete. And I'm a city person! I know there are people who like it, and that's fine... it's just not for me.

Most of them live in Nerima,


The first two years I lived in Japan, I lived in Nerima (Shakujii Koen).

I have no clue which area I was at, but I know the street that they all live in.
It was Toyotama Naka Nichome.

Dude, Minato Ward rocks!! Tokyo tower, Roppongi and Roppongi Hills, Azabu, Tsukiji, Aoyama, Keio University (Mita campus)... There's a lot in Minato! I lived in Shiba near the NEC offices. I think Harajuku and Shibuya are just outside of Minato while Aoyama is in Minato, but I can't remember since they're so close. There's a big temple right by the ward office called Zojoji, if I remember correctly. Hamamatsu isn't a bad place, either, and it's not far from Ginza. Odaiba is just close by, too. Fantastic location.B)

I have a friend who lives in Nakano. Sounds like a good place. He used to be near Meguro.... SO DIRTY.
