I love the shops and cafes that line this stretch! From the local Light Up coffee to the Margaret Howell cafe to the numerous little stores tucked upstairs, I spent a very happy afternoon there!

First visit here even though I have been to Japan many times. I love it . I will stay here for a few days during my next visit. More relaxing than downtown Tokyo.

No wonder Kichijoji was voted #1 or #2 as the best place to live by the locals. It's only a short 10-15 minutes train ride to Shinjuku or Shibuya if you want to experience that part of Tokyo. Kichijoji is laid back but has lots...More

We traveled by subway (all above ground) from Shibuya. Very easy to do as no changes are required and you just go from one end of the line to the other. It only takes about 15 minutes but you are in a totally different part...More

I really liked it - Kichijoji is a very chilled neighborhood with character and things to do. Very livable - the type of neighborhood I would move to if I were to relocate to Tokyo. Conveniently busy with lots of shops near the train station,...More

Tiny shops in the 2 - 3 blocks where you can try the local food. Plenty of shops for souvenirs. Great place for pictures if you are a amateur. You can go there by taking metro to kichijoji station.

Kichijoji is about 30 minutes from Shibuya or Shinjuku via the Chuo line. Upon arriving at the Kichijoji Station, you will see a very modern train station. Take either the North Gate to an arcade of stores [Seiyu-grocery store, Daiso-dollar store, Can-do - another dollar...More
