Ikebukuro Restaurant Guide

Along with Shinjuku and Shibuya—Ikebukuro is one of "Yamanote's three great subcenters".The owl statues called Ike-fukuro, which can be seen in and around the Ikebukuro Station area, were built to create meeting places much like the Hachiko statue at Shibuya. The Ike-fukuro at the east exit of Ikebukuro Station was installed in 1987 to commemorate the start of JR.The Seibu Department Stores is the symbol of the station's east exit.Sunshine City is a short walk from the station. With the Sunshine Tower 60 observation deck, aquarium, Namja Town, and more, the building's 60 floors are a city theme park that can be enjoyed by visitors of all ages.City development around the station is also spreading south, expanding the shopping district even more.Tobu Department Store, located on the west side, boasts the largest floor space of any store in Tokyo. This is also a neighborhood of arts and culture, with the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Space, the Ikebukuro Engeijo theater, and Rikkyo University in the area.Along Romansu-dori ("Romance Street") and Nishi-ichibangai Chuo-dori, there are eating establishments, movie theaters, and live music clubs.The north side is a bustling entertainment district with about a million people visiting each day.It is called Ikebukuro China Town with approximately 200 Chinese food stores.
