Opened in 2013, Kameido’s local tourist information centre is named after the area’s original ’tourist attraction’, the plum wood and estate depicted by ukiyo-e master Hiroshige in one of his best-known works. The faux-Edo structure also houses a multi-use hall and a shop selling local specialities, which range from turtle-shaped cookies and macarons to plum-flavoured mochi rice cakes and deluxe dried plums. The outdoor ‘ukiyo-e gallery’, with its woodblock print-style posters and advertisements, is also worth a quick look.
