Oshinari-kun no Ie (おしなりくんの家)
"This tourist information center and rest area is located in front of Tokyo Skytree about a three-minute walk from Oshiage Station. ""Oshinari-kun"" was designed to greet visitors, guide sightseeing in Sumida Ward and energize the local area by using the building which was vacant at the time. Oshinari-kun is a local character which was named from ""Oshi"" and ""Nari"" from the Oshiage and Narihirabashi areas. Its motif is Ariwara no Narihira, a waka poet of the Heian period, whose name became the origin of the name of Narihira Bridge, and it is characterized by his wearing an eboshi cap (a type of headgear worn by court nobles) with the Tokyo Skytree design. Original Oshinari-kun goods such as hand towels and cellphone straps are available for sale."

The setting of countless iconic movie scenes and the inspiration for songs, poetry, and literature worldwide, Tokyo barely requires an introduction. It’s hard for the kaleidoscopic neon lights, wacky pop culture, and some of the world’s tallest structures not to instill excitement in any first-time visitor to Tokyo, whether you’re in the very center of the hustle and bustle in Shinjuku or Shibuya or looking in from the quieter suburbs.
