A tour for train lovers and photographers of all ages!
Photograph trains, ride on them and immerse yourself in the world of trains, in Oji of the Kita Ward. This area is little known to visitors of Japan. Take photos in various locations; photos of trains from an overpass with Skytree in the background, photos of trams passing through the city from a footbridge, and photos of trains with the metro police building as a backdrop from an observatory. These locations are not in guidebooks, and are hard to find alone, so get an otomo tour guide to show you around! Enjoy a free ride on the shortest monorail in Japan, a ride on the last tram in Tokyo, and visit retired trains in Asukayama Park which is also known to be the smallest mountain in Tokyo.
