“OmoideYokocho’’ [Memory Lane] sometimes also called ‘’ShonbenYokocho’’ [Piss Alley] is nestled against the northwest corner of the worlds busiest train station, just a few minutes walk from the forest of modern and post-modern skyscrapers, Omoide Yokocho provides a delightful journey back in time to the gritty post-World War II days when hard-pressed, down-but-not-out Tokyoites gathered in ramshackle makeshift buildings for cheap, hearty food and drink after a hard day’s work rebuilding the shattered nation. In 1946, the area around Shinjuku Station was still marked by pockets of rubble from the heavy bombing raids of 1945. From the few remaining food stalls and small shops, selling miscellaneous daily goods, clothing, and shoes, a black market called “Lucky Street” emerged in the area.

It is held in celebration of the three founders of Sensoji Temple, who are enshrined as Shinto gods (kami) in Asakusa Shrine next door to the temple. Nearly two million people visit Asakusa over the three days of the festival, making it one of the three biggest festivals in Tokyo, together with the Kanda Matsuri and the Sanno Matsuri.

The 700 series is a Japanese Shinkansen high-speed train. The 700 series is characterized by its flat 'duck-bill' nose designed to reduce the piston effect as the trains enter tunnels. 16-car units are painted white with blue stripes beneath the windows, and are used for Nozomi, Hikari, and Kodama services on the Tokaido and Sanyo Shinkansen lines.
