About 15 min by train from Shinjuku you can find the cozy suburb Kichijōji. The area feels very artistic and fun with its narrow alleys, galleries, hip coffee shops and great shopping. Kichijōji has year after year been voted to be the number 1 place where people in Japan wish they could live and I can see why they wish so. Even if it’s very busy during the weekends it still feels very calm and cozy.
Inokashira park in Kichijōji is a beautiful and popular park to go to and enjoy the cherry blossoms during spring. We went to still our nature cravings but a big part of it is unfortunately being renovated right now.
I recommend you to stroll around in Kichijōji and don’t miss Nakamichi shopping street. You can find a lot of cute boutiques, interior stores and coffee shops there 🙂
Have a beautiful Friday♥
