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...

I live pretty close to here and it's one of my most favorite places in Tokyo. Places to check out: Ghibli Museum (must book in advance - maybe a month), and Inokashira Park. For food, I recommend: Ichien (for amazing, unforgettable ramen), Peppermint Cafe (yummy Thai food), Village Vanguard Diner (American style burgers), and Namaste Kathmandu (best Indian/Nepalese restaurant in...

I love Kichijouji for being a compact bit of everything that I want without walking around too much. There is the usual shopping area that mirrors Shinjuku and Shibuya with all the usual shops, but a little extra 'kawaii', then south of the train station are small alleys with all kinds of boutique-y shops, a lot of girly clothing stuff,...
