立石 : TATEISHI
Tateishi is a small town or estate in East Toyko. The town is quiet and it's nearby the popular Skytree area in Tokyo too. I stayed here for the 7 nights of my trip. At the center of the town, there is a train station which service run from the airports and city center. Also, there are a number of small stores and eateries around the station too.
This is my room for the 7 nights
I spent a number of nights having dinner at this restaurant. The beef bowl meal is only around S$4.30 (¥380), each meal come with miso soup (味噌スープ) and free flow of iced water (冷たい水)/warm green tea (お茶). The ambience was quiet and peaceful, the staffs were very friendly and helpful too. With my poor Japanese language, they are still able to know what I wanted.

Open daily: 24 hours!
Other than dinner, I also dined at this cafe during one of the nights. It was also a very quiet place to chill too. They sell a selection of coffee from the popular Matcha latte (抹茶ラテ) to the common cappuccino. Other than coffee, they also have a considerable good variety of breads and sandwiches too. Note, they also have an outlet in Singapore too!

Open daily: 0730 hrs - 2100 hrs
There are several ¥100 stores on this shopping street and there is a Matsumoto (マツモトキヨシ) store here too. I bought one of my collagen packs here too. I also noted that The Matsumoto (マツモトキヨシ) here is also much cheaper than the one at Harajuku.
Open daily: 1000 hrs - 2030 hrs
My guesthouse is nearby the Nakagawa (中川) river. This river is linked across the Tokyo Skytree. I can easily spot the Skytree from here. During one of the nights, I dropped by the river to catch the night view of the river and Skytree. It was pretty as expected.
