The Endless City

From the ground, Tokyo seems like a conglomeration of different and diverse cities, commercial centres and towns. But, it’s on top of one of Tokyo’s many skyscrapers, where you will realise: Tokyo is endless. See some pictures taken from Tokyo City View up on Mori Tower for proof.

Exploring Kichijoji

Kichijoji is one of those Tokyo neighbourhoods that gives you a small town feel in the big city just under 30 minutes by train from Shinjuku or Shibuya Station. It is home to an iconic Tokyo park as well as an eclectic mix of shops, restaurants, cafés. These are some spots and shops in Kichijoji that I’d like to recommend.
