The apartment where Hirayama lives


The two-story apartment on the west side of Koto Tenso Shrine where Hirayama, a toilet cleaner, lives.
With the scenery time seems to have stopped, and as if he is still living there.

Koto Tenso Shrine



Every morning Hirayama wakes up to the sound of sweeping at the nearby Koto Tenso Shrine.
The shrine also enshrines Fukurokuju, one of Kameido’s seven gods of good fortune.

Asakusa Fried noodles “Fuku-chan”


Izakaya Fuku-chan in Asakusa, where Hirayama stops by on his way home from the public bath. It has a nostalgic atmosphere in the Asakusa underground shopping mall, the oldest underground shopping mall in Japan.
Fried noodles ”Yakisoba” is only 400 yen! One of the reasons why Hirayama likes here is that it is not so crowded, making it a quiet place to enjoy a meal.
