Kichijoji reminds me a lot of places back in the UK I like. It's filled with quirky stores, vintage clothing and tiny restaurants as well as one of the loveliest parks I've been to (Inokashira Park; Lots of grass and benches, cool and original street performers and a welcoming vibe). It's a place where you can wander without being swallowed... More

Quirky, youthful, friendly, beautiful. I love Kichijoji! Great shopping, the gorgeous Inokashira Park is nearby - go on a Sunday to catch the markets/performers. There are some awesome restaurants here too - Midori Sushi, Village Vanguard, Pizzeria G.G...such a cool place to chill. Plus, the Ghibli museum is nearby! You can't go wrong.

One of my favourite places in Tokyo. Very lively and vibrant particularly in the park area. In the last few years Kichijoji has extensively developed and it doesn't look like it will stop any time soon. Not everyone like that sort of progress for those who like shopping they will feel right at home. Other local attractions include the Zoo... More

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.
