Hello~My name is Yuichiro.
I have been in Ningyo-cho for 7 years so far.
This area is the old part of Tokyo and it is influenced by the famous TV drama called ‘Shinsansya’. I have seen the dynamic change of this town. Recently, the population of this area in growing.
I am a member of shopping centre cooperative of Ningyo-cho trying to conserving the old good atmosphere there. I am kind of like a bridge to people who live there for long time and who come recently.

I give my business partner great time in Ningyo-cho as I think heart is so important.
