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...
Around Tokyo there are beautiful places including templs like Jorenji and Narita temple to my opinion are worth visiting. Many tourists like to be their during tourists seaon. Particularly Cherry blossom flower festival season
If you like to see city view and tall buildings from above, I think you should never miss Hoku Topia as one of destination on your itinerary. Also, don't forget that it's free. I was there on the afternoon but next time i'll try to come there before sunset, it must be more beautiful.
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...

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
Staff was friendly and helped me out with any questions I had (They could all speak English even if it was a little broken). Next to a major train station where multiple lines connect so there's little trouble getting home.
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 is good, easy to get connected, with Internet access. To my surprise, the toilet was with was warm water wash, lol. That's Japanese standard, their English is not that fluent by the way ;)
