If you're planning a visit to Tokyo, Nippori Station is one of the easiest Tokyo transport hubs to access and is connected to many of Tokyo’s train lines.
The neighborhood around the station is a great place for a stroll, especially if you're into sewing and crafts. The Nippori area is known as 'Fabric Town' and was traditionally Tokyo's textile district. Nippori is also one of the few areas of the city where Mt. Fuji can still be seen without having from street level. See if you can track down the elusive spots; the resulting photographs make a great Tokyo souvenir.
Many other places of interest are dotted around Nippori Station. One such gem is the Asakura Choso Museum, a three-tiered atelier of former sculptor Fumio Asakura. Visitors can enjoy many wonderfully-detailed bronzes in the museum’s exhibit rooms, as well as the wealth of Fumio Asakura's personal collection of antiquities. In the spring, don’t miss a stroll under the flowering sakura trees in peaceful Yanaka Cemetery.
