ITS DIVERSE AND VIBRANT SHOPPING CENTER IS SURROUNDED BY PEACEFUL RESIDENTIAL AREAS AND HOME TO THE FAMED INOKASHIRA PARK.

The street from the station to the park looks similar to Harajuku streets. The town is also known for Ghibli Museum.

The majority of Kichijoji’s commercial and shopping areas are situated around the station. There is a little something to suit just about everyone’s needs.

The north side of the station is centered on two arterial shopping streets. The Sunroad heads northeast and Nakamichi heads northwest.

Beyond the shopping streets, commercial gives way to residential. While all the land is effectively used, it’s not packed. Straight, well planned, flat roads and it’s less central location make for very easy living.

Some parking is open in apartment house nearby (cost is unkown.)  It doesn't request many construction work but depends on how to live. It is possible to create more bed rooms inside.
