  • A ride in the Ikebukuro district and the streets around the station. We see all kinds of shops, from large chains to small shops: absolutely everything! It's lively, it's crowded, is sometimes (very) loud. I loved this abundance!

  • Tokyo is a big city. There are a quarter of high-rises, shopping with glittering lanterns, futuristichnymi station with trains, but they live a completely normal people. If there is time to walk, recommend a walk through this street. Very amusing.
