Kinshicho is a large station, and a popular shopping and entertainment area in Sumida Ward in the east of Tokyo. There are lots of large retailers here including Parco, Marui, Yodobashi Camera, H&M, and baby and maternity wear megastore Akachan Honpo.

The area is filled with a ton of cheap izakaya, hole-in-the-wall drinking spots, snacks, and karaoke bars. It’s also apparently famous as one of the largest red light districts outside of the better known Kabukicho.
