Soshigaya is a residential neighborhood in Setagaya Ward to the north of Soshigaya-Okura Station on the Odakyu Line.
The neighborhood is known for the “Ultraman Shopping Street” that extends north from the Station. Along the shopping street are discount supermarkets, 100 yen shops, cafes, bars and restaurants.
The Ultraman connection is because the head office of Tsuburaya Productions – the studio that produces Ultraman – was located nearby.
As well as the shopping street, a statue outside the station also commemorates the connection.
