Neighborhoods Kami-Ikebukuro

Spirit

The district of Kita-Ikebukuro is located in the North (Kita in Japanese) of the large Ikebukuro station, approximately 10 minutes away by foot (and 3 minutes by taxi). As in the city of Tokyo, as soon as you exit the main roads, you will find the calm of the district.


Pluses

Quick access to Tokyo's major centres (Shinjuku, Shibuya, Ueno, Akihabara...)
A handy district for accessing the shops (Maruetsu Supermarket, Family Mart Konbini, bento sellers...)
A district that is quiet at night and in the daytime, as soon as you move away from the Meiji Dori.

Minuses

The Meji Dori and its pavements are sometimes a little bit congested to access the large Ikebukuro station.
