Edo-koji Street at Haneda Airport

Travel back time at the ultra-modern airport in Tokyo

By Takako Sakamoto    - 1 min read

Have you ever been to Tokyo International Airport to not board on an airplane, but to explore what it offers? If you haven't you should, because it has much to offer to its visitors!

The other day I visited here solely to see the Edo-koji Street because I'm a big fan of Kabuki. Since I saw on TV news a few years ago that something related to Kabuki had opened here, I wanted to see it. I found it as soon as I entered the street on the 4th floor. There were big Nishiki-e (woodblock prints) decorating the walls of some shops and they looked like a miniature version of Kabukiza theater in Higashi Ginza. Most of the shops sell retro-modern Japanese goods, but some are for visitors who love Japan's pop culture. There are many restaurants to dine in along the street, and on the 5th floor there is an observation deck to enjoy the magical twilight.

I was born in and grew up in Tokushima prefecture, and have lived in many places since then: Nishinomiya, Kyoto, Nara, Mie, Tokyo, Kanagawa, Saitama, Chiba, Fukuoka and Fukui. I am currently living in Yokohama City. All the places I lived, all the places I visited, I have loved dearly. The historical places where people lived, loved, suffered, and fought - places where I can still hear their heartbeats - mesmerize me. I'd like to retrace the footsteps of the people who lived in Japan a long long time ago, and introduce to you what they left behind on this soil.
