Strolling at Kichijoji

Kichijyoji (30 7 2020)

Kichijyoji, only 15 min. by train from Shinjuku, has many faces loved by all generations.

Let’s start from a statue of elephant

Hanako, the oldest elephant lived in Japanese zoo, past away at 2016 at 69 years old, in front of the station.

Near the station, many customers were in lines in front of popular shops. Some popular old shops are in line on the streets

But, after the crowded street, a road to Inokashira park is cozy.

In the zoo, there is no elephant, but many small animals make us relax.
