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
A little walk from the station, many stylish or eccentric looking shops are coming into view.
Near the shopping street, some temples such as Ensoji are locating but no Kichijyoji temple.

In back streets, atmosphere is changed completely.

At south exit of the station, crowded street is little bit castic.
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.
In the park, we can enjoy very good quiet atmosphere.
