In Akabane and Itabashi, visitors can get a glimpse of the ordinary day-to-day life of Tokyo. On the east side of Akabane station, there are many traditional shopping districts and small izakayas, while on the west side, there’s a modern shopping mall. Itabashi is currently being developed as a residential area with a huge 1.1km long shopping street that extends from east to west. Rows of shops and izakayas target the down to earth everyday needs of locals. Both Akabane and Itabashi are notable for their easy access to the city center as well as their proximity to Ikebukuro.
Having lived here for ages, I was surprised to learn that Tokyo has a Daibutsu (Great Buddha statue) of it's own. Of course, everyone is aware of the Daibutsu statues in Nara's Tōdaiji & Kamakura's Kōtoku-in but this one is tucked away in the spacious & serene confines of Jōrenji Temple ~乗蓮寺(which was relocated to Akatsuka in 1971), in an obscure and quiet residential...
"Charming neighbourhood petting zoo in equally charming Japanese town"
reviewed 17 January 2015 by AsiaMorgan
I also saw a few seniors who loved it, too. Then, there is a larger area with goats and sheep running freely which you can feed and pet as long as you like. And then there are pony rides. And, all of this is for free. Beside the zoo is a nice neighborhood playground, which adds to the ambiance with...
On some reasons, I rarely seen this place is included in the list of top sakura viewing place in Tokyo. The paths on the bank of Shakuji river, especially from just below the Oji Shrine near Oji station up to Nerima city has outstanding views of cherry blossom (sakura) trees. The narrow river has steep bank where the sakura branches...
They have the best cakes I ever tasted. My daughter ordered for their cheesecake and she said it's like melting in her mouth. We bought a birthday cake too. We celebrated his birthday there.
You can dine there. They have table for two, three and max for four people. The staff were very helpful too. If given a chance again....
Moko tanmen Nakamoto is the Chinese noodle shop whose head store is in Itabashi Ward in Tokyo. The branch shops are in Ikebukuro, Shinjuku, Shibuya and so on. If you like spicy foods, you will be hooked on Nakamoto’s foods. The shop is vital. The cooks and the service staffs are spirited. Many people often line in front of the...
I took my kids to there and had a Unajyu it was very delicious.They have a gorgeous Japanese garden.
This place are very good for business meeting too.

This cosy little burger/sandwich bar is close to Kami-Itabashi Station on the Tobu Tojo line. Only a few vegetarian sandwiches but absolutely delicious. Fresh fillings with excellent sauces. (Mine had a great salsa.) Burgers also looked amazing. Of course, the service was superb (as it usually is in Japan).
i wanted to try another different part of tokyo and i was on a budget this time.
got a good deal for two bed room the neighborhood is quiet and friendly.
restaurants,bars,and train station are but just a short walking distance.
i travel for experience not for fancy place.
The location of this place means you are facing a main road with a heck of a lot of traffic. Great if you can grab one of the earplug sets offered in a large bucket on arrival. But if travelling with small ones, you can't exactly where them, so trying to sleep thru the constant traffic can be a nightmare...
The location is good, easy to get connected, with Internet access. To my surprise, the toilet was with was warm water wash, lol. That's Japanese standard, their English is not that fluent by the way ;)
