Exploring Japan: July 25th random Tokyo part 3 – Nippori, Arakawa Ward

Welcome to part 3!  Nippori was a very pleasant surprise.  This area is very historic, and there are many old buildings and houses.  In Nippori, there was an art gallery called Scai the Bathhouse that was holding an exhibition of modern art.  The art was created using lasers, as well as clear glass and photographs.  It was very interesting.  Let’s take a look at Nippori!
