Sanda Claus in Ikebukuro, Toshima Ward, Tokyo 11km

池袋を抱えるサンタ(東京都豊島区)のGPSアート

GPS art of Santa Claus in a sack in one of Japan’s most famous downtown areas✨

This is a course of Santa’s GPS art that depicts Ikebukuro, one of the three major sub-centers in Tokyo, as a giant bag. The course goes around the downtown area around the station, and Santa’s main body is in the downtown area at the west exit. This is also a good place for sightseeing in Tokyo.
The area used to be called Ikebukuro Village because of the Fukuro Pond in this area. During the Meiji and Taisho periods, the area flourished as a shopping district, but after the Pacific War, it developed as a black market. At the east exit is the Sugamo Prison (today’s Sunshine 60), where Class A war criminals were imprisoned, and the area between Ikebukuro Station and the Sugamo Prison developed into a vast entertainment and dining district that still exists today.
