(559) Toei Tamagawa Ni-chome Apartments 都営多摩川二丁目第2アパート

Toei Tamagawa Ni-chome Apartments 都営多摩川二丁目第2アパート (map) is a pair of buildings (#19 an #21) in Ota-ku, not far from the Tamagawa river.

Building 19

Building 21, and its rooftop water tank 高架水槽 (elevated tank)

The danchi is adjacent to a small park, Furukawa Daini Jido Park 古川第二児童公園, seen here with its very public bathroom:

Around the corner is a delightful old fruit store.

I’ve found that fruit stores are consistently the most atmospheric old buildings in Tokyo, for instance:

Just a short walk from here is Michizukadaisan jidoukouen 「道塚第三児童公園」 (map), a park built on top of old train tracks. See: Map: ‘High Lines’ and Rail Trails of Tokyo
