    It is located very near to JR Sugamo station. Turn left after leaving Sugamo station, go straight then pass the first seen pedestrian bridge, you are at the Jizo-dori shopping street. This street is quieter than Harajuku for sure and a lot of goods is for elderly. There are Shinshoji and Koganji temples next to the street. One type of the famous goods in the street is red underwear. Food and coffee are available. It is worth visit this place.

    A great place in the middle of the city. The park was beautiful for the autumn colors. Peaceful in the midst of bustling Tokyo

    This mall had many shops which kept us busy during our stay in Prince Hotel Sunshine City. Very convenient location. The staff of all the shops were very courteous & accommodating. We were looking for a specific model of an Asics rubbers and they pointed us i instead to Asics main store somewhere near Ginza. Very helpful. They went out of their way to help. I like staying in this area of ikebukuro since its very central. Near restos, shopping, anime department store (my boys are die-hard anime fans!), aquarium and transport hub.

    If you find yourself in Sunshine City Ikebukuro, this is the observatory at the top. The place is built with interactive installations through the walk around the building but I think the best view you get is the very first set of windows as you walk through the circus tent entrance.

    There are some VR rides and games in the tower and the cannon ride one has the longest queue at about 30-45 minutes on the off-peak time I went. Definitely take your time wandering about first before queueing. The cannon ride was thrilling and immersive.

    There is a Tully's cafe in the observatory as well, and it was quiet and peaceful during the off-peak hour I went. I waited for the sunset to take nice pictures there.

    I don't see myself coming back again, but it's a nice place to visit in the area that is not as busy as the mall and streets in this district.

    Of the 3 department stores in the area, it is the biggest with north and south blocks. You can find at the top floor their Roof Top Garden Park. At the basement, again, food stalls and grocery items for take out. We went there after 5:30pm and looked for our desired food items to bring back to hotel for dinner. Discount can be 50%. Bakery items are not cheap.

    While staying at Hotel Metropolitan, I found the post office in this building very convenient, as there isn’t any other post office nearby.

    Frank Lloyd's beautiful architecture in the heart of Tokyo. Worth seeing! Between Mejiro and the North of Ikeukuro.

    We saw many Japanese students dressed in colourful Kimono and Hakama for their graduation. My Japanese friend told me that they were mostly rental costumes.

    Its a great shoppingcenter for both families and couples. Lots of different stores with clothes, shoes, toys and almost anything else you could look for in a mall.
    Lots of restaurants and cafés aswell.
    On the top deck there is an aquarium and terrarium that are also worth if a visit if you already plan to visit the mall.

    Nice temple to visit and experience the culture. Worshippers come and pray for health. There is a statute of the Goddess of Kannon where you wash the part of the statute that is sore and will cure your ailment. Outside of the temple, there are many shops and restaurants.

    Well kept market and a surprising one, this market holds the place for different food stands as well as some good coffee shops and clothing shops
    prices are ok, nice variety of goods and a very nice stroll for some sunday afternoon
    the temple also attracts locals and is also a nice view and attraction for tourists

    Filled with lots of teenagers playing games, a small skate ramp (not much of a skate park), and the center is basically a square plot of grass transplanted down. There is a restaurant (Racines) right next to it to grab some coffee.

    It is not very large and is open after 8AM.

    It is pleasant to sit down here for a few minutes of quiet and to get away from the crowds of Sunshine city (mall).
