Discover charms of the most popular residential area in Tokyo

On annual surveys for popular towns in Tokyo, Kichijoji has got No. 1 in recent years.
Why do so many Tokyoite want to live in this small town? Here’s an answer.
If you join my “discover charms of Kichijoji” tour, I’m sure you would love this town too!
The keyword is “relax”.
1. Easy access: 30 min. from Tokyo or 15 min. from Shinjuku by JR Chuo line.
2. Nature: only 5 min. walk will take you to the Inokashira Park. There are small zoo and aquarium.
3. 1300-year-old shrine is located in the park. It was Jomon period (10,000 B.C.-300 B.C.) when Japanese people settled down on this shore of the pond!
4. Shopping: Many attractive, individual shops as well as branch shops of large-sized electronics (Yodobashi Camera) and clothing stores (Uniqlo). We will walk around “harmonica lane” which still remains nostalgic feeling of 1950s.
5. Food: We will have a nice powdered tea and sweets at a cozy tea house near the park.

Let's talk!
