Xianxia Lu

Xianxia Lu

Xianxia Lu (仙霞路) is the main commercial and arterial road through Shanghai’s Japanese expatriate area in Changning District. The community is not so dense nor its boundaries concrete enough to call it an enclave, it’s more a center of gravity for Japanese and some Korean residents in the city. Mei and I went for an...

On the afternoon of Christmas Eve 2016, Mei and I headed across the Huangpu River to Lujiazui (陆家嘴) in search of a Christmas market held at one of the large hotels there.

Kitasenju

Kitasenju

Kitasenju (北千住) is an interesting cluster of shōtengai, narrow high-texture streets and, more recently, university campuses orbiting the hub train station of the same name in Adachi Ward. There is much to see and my original walk plan had been to spend at least half a day exploring. When rain moved in, rather than scrap...
