  • Shibuya and Shinjuku by train and convenient traffic location 10 minutes ' from the suburbs and the downtown is different from a quiet residential town; In many years continues to work around the station as it dived beneath the Odakyu line to or gone the old familiar shops somewhere along the line.

  • Japanese visit the Shimo-Kitazawa 20s 30-something that many people, he's 10. Might be a town there are attractive to young people some money can be used freely. Foreigners are also increasing recently, these were kids deviation from the is enjoying the busy streets of Japan, until a couple. Attraction is a shopping and dining.

At another store recommended Darwin served in the fossils and books are a small shop, drink patient can take. Suitable to spend a little spare time, slow time.
