Northern Tokyo includes Kita, Itabashi, Toshima, Bunkyo, Taito, Arakawa and Adachi districts. Traditionally less frequented by tourists, this broad area welcomes residential boroughs as well as universities.
The area is less known by visitors of Tokyo, maybe because it is more discreet than its other touristic zones.
All around the big area of Kita, very residential, few attractions appeal to travelers. However, it offers another angle of Tokyo, including the International French High School.
Most of the visits described below offer you to explore a different Tokyo, quiet and far from the common bombastic image the capital conveys all around the world.
