I lived in Kichijoji for one year and i can't begin to tell you how much i love this area. Sure there are other nice areas (Daikanyama, Meguro, Jiyugaoka, Shimokitazawa, Aoyama etc) but Kichijoji has that little extra something. It has everything you need (Loft, Parco, Marui, StarbuckSSS etc) and lots of cute little shops. It feels so calm compared to Shibuya and all the other busy areas of Tokyo but yet it's very lively. I lived in different areas of Tokyo (Minato-ku, Meguro-ku, Setagaya-ku) but this is by far ma favorite.
It has changed a lot over the years, Lonlon has been replaced by Atré, some shops have closed, others opened but there is a reason why it's always voted best area to live in year after year by the japanese.
