Firstly, if you haven't been to Kichijoji, you should go as soon as possible! The place has everything: a huge park with a pond, bustling shopping streets and even and an old-style yoko-cho, or back alley street area, with lots of interesting Japanese taverns and restaurants. Kichijoji has its fare share of excellent yakitori restaurants. Yakitori generally refers to grilled chicken on skewers. Here are five places you should try while visiting Kichijoji town.
Kichijoji might not be well-known by those by travelling through Tokyo, but it is a favourite for Japanese!! It is was voted last year the most popular neighbourhood to live in in Tokyo. Why you may ask? Because you can get downtown (Shinjuku/Shibuya) with an express train in less than 20 minutes, but it is recluded enough to be calm. There is a huge and beautiful park, all the types of cuisines you can think of, plenty of small and cute cafes, good places to go shopping no matter your taste. In other words, you need to see it for yourself! You can easily spend the day there blissfully hopping from one store to another.
Backpacking or travelling solo can be fun, but it can be lonely at times. If you're visiting Japan on your own and feeling lonely, making a visit to a cat cafe may swipe away your loneliness! This article will introduce several cat cafes in Tokyo!
