We will always go to Kichijoji. You can go to this place by Inokashira line from Shibuya and get on the trani until it arrives at Kichijoji which is the terminal. you will not have to worry that you will get lost. Or if you get on the train from Shinjuku by Chuuo Line you also can go directlyto Kichijoji . It is a very trendy place with so many shops, good coffee shops with home made cake by the owner, restaurants, and Tokyu Department Store and Japanese restaurant that gives good food or even a cheap western food for young generation etc. We will walk from the station for a few minutes to go to the Kutsushita ya (Sock Shop) which is on the left hand side if you walk from the station in the crowded main road next to Starbucks and close toTokyu Department store. It is easy to find if you ask about Tokyo Department Store. The shop is in another road in front of the Store.The reason that I always go to buy socks because this shop has many kinds of socks -inexpensive, nice, trendy and durable not like what I bought here in the US. Most of the socks in the shop are very trendy for casual, sport wear with many kinds of colors and styles to choose. I always buy 3 pairs for 1,000 yen which are special discount price. After that we will go to have a cup of tea and coffee at Starbucks. It is a very nice and exciting place to visit and mostly the price here are not expensive --great fun to shop here. So many kinds of unique shops to enjoy shopping or walking around and have fun.

We stayed in Ginza and it took around 40 mins to travel to Kichijoji. We went to the Inokashira Park, which is closed to the railway station. Unlike Shinjuku Gyoen there are many locals in the park, having picnic and enjoying the nice weather and cherry blossom.

We then went to the other side of the railway station, where there’re plenty of shops and restaurants. We tried the very famous deep fried beef ball but frankly I didn’t enjoy so much as it’s too oily and there’re too much onion. We also tried a 100 yen sushi restaurant and it was nice.

Overall it’s a nice place and worth spending a day or half walking around.

Bunch of the restaurants, shops, attractions ( including Ghibli studio) makes this neighborhood interesting for visitors, and also very attractive to live for the residents.

Kichijoji!!! Actually I live here lol, but there is sooooo much to do in this area! You have inokashira park which has a zoo for 500 yen. Very cheap! Along with a lake That you can ride boats all year round. Besides that, you also have alot of cool little shops in kichijoji to check out. Alot of these shops have clothes, accessories, mini car racing, ice creams, boba tea and more! Also, if you guys like animal cafes, they just built the biggest cat cafe in all of tokyo here and they also have an owl, bunny, and falcon cafe!! There is alot more things to do here, so its best to explore it all on your own!
