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 the station affectionately called Harmonica Alley. Tiny alleyway criss-cross the small area and is full of tiny izakayas and standing bars.

Pretty easy to find using the Tokyo rail system. Worth the effort. It is west of central Tokyo. There is a huge shopping street, restaurants, shops and cool areas to explore. In addition, Inokashira Park is nearby. We spent a few hours there and enjoyed everything about this area.

Highly recommended for a few hours sightseeing &shopping. Also has many restaurant options, especially on the park side of the station. Sun Road has a large selection of shops.

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.

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.
