We decided to hit up kichioji on a Sunday so the kids would run around and we could get out of the city. It was an awesome park! About 10 min walk from the train station, and lots of little stores eateries and a big mall along the way. The park itself was awesome. 600-700¥ for a 30 min paddle... More

The Director of Studio Ghibli, Hayao Miyazaki designed the museum himself using story boards similar to the ones he creates for his films. This is a must see for the young and old. The museum building is part of the exhibit and allows people to experience it uniquely through their own eyes and ears. A great day away from the... More

Worth visiting in sakura season with a beautiful lakeside cherry blossom. Boat tour along the lake is recommended.

This park is very close to JR Kichijoji station. Take your time walk around the lake and watch locals draw, read or simply converse. Out on the water are row boats and paddle swan type boats. I watched a street performer and thought he was really good. Toilets are in very good condition. There are some second hand type stores... More

Just a normal park, with a huge size and lots of sakura trees. So you better visit this place around Spring time. It is not crowded by the morning, it gets crowded by afternoon due to some sport activity. It is a very good place to have sport activity from light tracking to a baseball. There is a zoo in...

We love visiting Kichijoji in the western Tokyo suburbs. On the north side of the station it's all about hectic shopping and nightlife. However, on the south side of the station, about a 5 minute walk, is this beautiful huge park, with a lake, walking paths, and nearby hip restaurants. It's a good place to people watch, especially Japanese families... More

This park has a beautiful pond and lots of sakura trees around it! So beautiful at the beginning of April. The park can be reached by Inokashira line from Shibuya (get off at Inokashira Koen sta) or Chuo line from Shinjuku, Yotsuya, and Tokyo (get off at Kichijoji sta, South exit). There are a lot of food options near the... More

So I went to the area right beside the museum and saw a few huge cherry trees in full bloom with a few people sitting underneath the trees. As the... More

It was a wet day when we visited this park. The cherry blossoms were still a sight to behold although they were about 60% left. The park is within walking distance from the Kichijoji station.
