I came here on vacation with my sister who was looking for places to live having just moved to Tokyo. She had been raving about how great a neighborhood Kichijoji was and I was rather ambivalent about coming there. But I am so glad I did. This is my favorite neighborhood in Tokyo. A perfect blend of hipster charm, crazy... More

It looks like many of the small suburban areas of Tokyo but the shotengai (shopping street) here is compact and to me, just the right size to explore and get anything and everything. There are also many eateries both sides of the station and the fact that Inokashira park is nearby for a quiet afternoonis a bonus for me.

Compared to other tourist cities like shibuya and shinjuku, kichijoji was peaceful. At the southern exit, you will find the Inokashira park, a busy streets full of small shop right in front of the station, and OIOI shopping complex. At the northern exit, you will find more shopping streets and it is where the famous satou steakhouse is located. You... More

We enjoyed our day wandering through Kichijoji - the large park, interesting shops, relaxed feel after the rush of Shinjuku.

There are many shopping malls and markets in the area. We were able to buy cheap and fresh strawberry in the market.

Kichijoji is a great area of Tokyo to stay in - cheaper and calmer than downtown Tokyo, but still close enough to see Tokyo easily. Traditional food market alone will make your stay worthwhile.

If you stay in an international hotel in one of the major urban hubs in Tokyo, you probably feel a bit disconnected from traditional Japan. But if you want to get away from Western buffet breakfasts and a bar that could be in any hotel in any city in the world, hop on a Chuo Line train and go to... More

The station building was remodeled less than a year ago and there are two floors of excellent boutiques and restaurants and basement level excellent food shopping. No need to go to Ginza, Shinjuku, Shibuya, Ikebukuro- almost everything is here and less crowded. A place to just walk around and discover - and a wonderful kimono store in the covered arcade...
