Nippori
Suwa Shrine on top of Suwa-dai hill near Nippori To the west of Nippori Station are two hills called Suwa-dai and Dokan-yama. Both were popular with the people of Edo as a place to enjoy scenery. From here one could see beautiful farming villages of Mikawashima and Ogu, then the mountains of Nikko, and Mt Tsukuba on the horizon. Looking west, they could see Mt Fuji, too. Higurashi no Sato, the area around Suwa-dai hill, was known as one of the main sights of Edo where writers and artists gathered to enjoy owers of the season blooming, chirping crickets and the full moon in the autumn, and snow-covered hills and farms in winter. Today these scenes are visible from the tallest buildings and temples and shrines from that period are still to be found. Yanaka Ginza shopping district near the station and Nippori Textile Town bustle with modern shoppers and sightseers.
