Kichijoji, Musashino

(220+ reviews on the web)
Neighborhood Tourist Spot
The hip and well-equipped neighborhood of Kichijoji consistently ranks as the place that Japanese people wish they could live--presumably due to its vibrant and youthful reputation, along with a slight seasoning of countercultural attitude. Take a stroll among the younger generations of Tokyo inhabitants, with ample and varied shopping opportunities to explore (think vintage clothing and unusual knickknacks). Stop to rest in the picturesque park, especially striking during cherry blossom season. Add Kichijoji to your Musashino travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Musashino itinerary builder.
