In Akabane and Itabashi, visitors can get a glimpse of the ordinary day-to-day life of Tokyo. On the east side of Akabane station, there are many traditional shopping districts and small izakayas, while on the west side, there’s a modern shopping mall. Itabashi is currently being developed as a residential area with a huge 1.1km long shopping street that extends from east to west. Rows of shops and izakayas target the down to earth everyday needs of locals. Both Akabane and Itabashi are notable for their easy access to the city center as well as their proximity to Ikebukuro.
Hi I just wanted to correct misspelled word.
Please change to Furukawa. Thanks!
I went to high school near by and we used to draw and paint in the garden during the class. Back in the late ‘70s it was rather dilapidated but now I was pleasantly surprised to revisit the garden in fond memories. Someone did a great job...
Having lived here for ages, I was surprised to learn that Tokyo has a Daibutsu (Great Buddha statue) of it's own. Of course, everyone is aware of the Daibutsu statues in Nara's Tōdaiji & Kamakura's Kōtoku-in but this one is tucked away in the spacious & serene confines of Jōrenji Temple ~乗蓮寺(which was relocated to Akatsuka in 1971), in an obscure and quiet residential...
"It's not famous the sport of viewing Sakura trees. "
reviewed 26 June 2017 by avocadjack
I recommend you that here is one of the best locating spots of Sakura trees! When high seasons of Sakura really a lot of tourist coming Sakura spots in Japan. Surely famous spots has a great Sakura. However, here is very quietly and I felt more Japanese spiritual mind.
This shop sells traditional Japanese sweets but fantastically, they are not overly sweet and always welcomes as gifts (omiyage). There is often a line out the door and if they sell that day's stock of Kuromatsu (their signature sweet), that's it. You'll have to try another day or purchase something else. I've only bought the Kuromatsu as they are famous...
They have the best cakes I ever tasted. My daughter ordered for their cheesecake and she said it's like melting in her mouth. We bought a birthday cake too. We celebrated his birthday there.
You can dine there. They have table for two, three and max for four people. The staff were very helpful too. If given a chance again....
The way to the Oden Bar is a bit complicated.
There are no seats and you stand in front of the table.
You can order the set of Oden and a drink i.e. alcohol, and you enjoy eating it on outside table.
Strongly recommended on a cold evening in Tokyo.
Moko tanmen Nakamoto is the Chinese noodle shop whose head store is in Itabashi Ward in Tokyo. The branch shops are in Ikebukuro, Shinjuku, Shibuya and so on. If you like spicy foods, you will be hooked on Nakamoto’s foods. The shop is vital. The cooks and the service staffs are spirited. Many people often line in front of the...
"Broiled eels locals foodie treat and westerners welcomed"
reviewed 27 March 2016 by WendyWindow
We are always scouting for local food experiences in non-michelin star restaurants (my husband wont eat anywhere where they put 'foam' on his plate) and this one was a winner.
This restaurant was recommended to us via a friend who was taken there by a local Japanese colleague.
It is located in the non-touristy neighbourhood of Akabane in an area...
the staff are lovely and very helpful. rooms are decent size but are taken up mostly by the double bed in them. the bathrooms are a good size and very clean. close by to shops and the train staion with easy access to trains to Disneyland and electric city. rooms serviced daily
Nice & comfortable hotel. The rooms are pretty clean and good enough for a single occupancy.
Little far from Tokyo but good connection from airport. It is very close to Ikebukera station. Tokiwadai is a very small place and has an Indian reataurant as well opp to station.
The hotel staff is very good. They provide complimentary utincils.
Typically small rooms which were basic but clean. Not many sockets but I got by. Apart from an issue where they had to redirect me to another router the Wi-fi worked pretty well. Laundry service worked OK.
There are no other facilities in the hotel. You get a breakfast voucher for Denny’s downstairs which I got bored with after 7...
The location of this place means you are facing a main road with a heck of a lot of traffic. Great if you can grab one of the earplug sets offered in a large bucket on arrival. But if travelling with small ones, you can't exactly where them, so trying to sleep thru the constant traffic can be a nightmare...
