For those of you who are considering living in Tokyo or want to see more of daily life, this new series is for you. From now on I'll be taking you for a gander around various train stations in Tokyo.
Located around most stations is a shopping area called "Shotengai" [[しょうてんがい]商店街]. Shotengai usually consists of the post office, beauty salons, doctors, dentists, convenience store, restaurants, pachinko parlors, supermarkets and so on.
Today we have a lookie around the Oimachi station shotengai which we explored for the first time the other night.
