There are a lot of great restaurants near the train station. Inogashira park is only several minutes away. Kichijoji is one of the most popular towns where Japanese people want to live.

We have been here many times and each time find new places to go to. Full of individual shops, restaurants and cafes, which still hold a charm in amongst all the branded places. If you only go once you have to visit the area near...More

Love this place because of the combination of tranquility in the nearby streets and the joyful little streets near the station. By train only 30 min from Ginza.
