HORIKIRI RETRO HOUSE

Final Edition

Live in a retro house downtown

A Japanese downtown experience in Horikiri- food, izakaya, bath houses.

Fuji no yu: 5-minute walk from Horikiri Shobuen station

Horikiri Shobuen is the kind of town you want to return to after a long day and have a drink before going home. There are lots of places to do so around Horikiri Shobuen. And there's plenty more, too, from an old long-standing bath house, a 24-hour Chinese restaurant, a counter-only curry shop, an the pleasant Arakawa riverside.
In this article, we will introduce Horikiri Retro House and the Horikiri area!

Horikiri Retro House

A big house

Horikiri Retro House is a 10-minute walk from the Keisei line Horikiri Shobuen station. The house stands out with its fantastically colored red roof.

Retro details everywhere
Let's head inside and see all the retro details. The house was renovated recently, but we tried to leave as many of the original owner's intentions as possible.

The Horikiri Shobuen area

So, what do you think of Horikiri Retro house?
It has a cute exterior, varied rooms, and a relaxed feeling.
And how about the town of Horikiri Shobuen? We took a look around to showcase the best spots!

Kotobuki yu

You can tell by the big chimney

It's right behind the house! Just a minute walk away from the house is the public bath house sento Kotobuki yu. It was established in 1945, and has a big painting of Mt. Fuji on the wall. Unfortunately we couldn't work out a schedule to take pictures, but why not check it out for yourself?

Sosai Saito

Lots of pre-made dishes!

Just 30 meters from Horikiri Shobuen station is this place, Saito, that sells pre-made dishes. They make a wide variety, perfect for when you live a lone or with a family. The bentos are just 300 yen! We saw people buying a lot at once. They are open from 9 AM to 7 PM, but the bentos start going out at 10. Why not pick up some bentos and croquettes and have a picnic in the park?

Lots of food!

300-yen bento!

Curry shop Aloo

A vending machine outside

Lastly, we checked out Curry Shop Aloo, which has been in business in Horikiri Shobuen for 20 years!
There are just 8 counter seats, and the kind woman running the shop makes hearty home-style curry, and lots of it.

Just 8 counter seats!

Pork curry with egg! Tasty!

Aloo means potato in Hindi, and that's one of the ingredients that brings out a certain sweetness in the curry.
There's a lot in eat serving, so bring an empty stomach!
It was cold and rainy the day we went, and the owner reminded us to stay warm so as not to catch a cold. It's just a minute's walk from Horikiri Shobuen station.
