Invitation to Shibamata & Edogawa Cycling
The home town of Vagabond Tora-san

This time we visit Shibamata and cycle along the Edogawa River; to the Pony Farm, south of Shibamata, and to the Mizumoto Park, north of Shibamata. The terrain is flat. Total length is 33 km, just good length for a novice cyclist and a family. [Shibamata] Well known as the home town of Tora-san in a series of movies 『男はつらいよ』(Story of vagabond Tora-san),Strolling the street is a good way to enjoy Shibamata . Shibamata Taishakuten, a temple, is famous for sculptures. Yamamoto House was built in Meiji era, and its garden are worth visit. Admission fee for Yamamoto House is 100 yen, or 550 yen which covers Tora-san Museum also. There are shops and restaurants on both side of the main street that leads to the temple. [Mizumoto Park] We cycle through this spacious park with large water area. Tall trees for 1.2 km makes you feel as if you were in Hokkaido.
