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 stayed in Ginza and it took around 40 mins to travel to Kichijoji. We went to the Inokashira Park, which is closed to the railway station. Unlike Shinjuku Gyoen there are many locals in the park, having picnic and enjoying the nice weather and...More
