Yanaka (谷中) is one of the few districts in Tokyo where the shitamachi atmosphere, an old town ambience reminiscent of Tokyo from past decades, still survives.

Ikebukuro (池袋) is one of Tokyo's multiple city centers, found around the northwestern corner of the Yamanote loop line. At the district's center stands Ikebukuro Station, a busy commuter hub traversed by three subway and multiple urban and suburban train lines. The station handles over a million passengers per day, making it the second busiest railway station surpassed only by Shinjuku Station. Ikebukuro offers plenty of entertainment, shopping and dining opportunities. It is the battleground between the Tobu and Seibu conglomerates which operate large department stores on each side of the station, as well as train lines from Ikebukuro into the suburbs. Seibu furthermore has a stake in Sunshine City, a large shopping and entertainment complex not far from the station.

Take a short walk from the bustling transport hub of Ueno Station and find yourself in a cultural and recreational haven. The expansive park that sits next to the station houses many museums, a large boating pond, a shrine with a pagoda and a large zoo—home to the two-tone mascot of the area, the panda. The park is the focus of attention in April as the many cherry trees burst into bloom. Follow the train tracks of the Yamanote Line towards neighboring Okachimachi Station to experience Ameyoko—the bustling shopping street where the distinctive calls of market sellers can be heard selling everything and anything from clothes, spices, cosmetics and fresh fish.

Waseda is where all the cool kids hang out. And so will you. Waseda is home to its eponymous university and is a hub for young students in Tokyo, hailing from all over the country and elsewhere. Waseda University has produced many prominent figures, particularly writers, and so this area of Tokyo has quite a cultured, artsy vibe—and we like it!

Rikugien (六義園) is often considered Tokyo's most beautiful Japanese landscape garden alongside Koishikawa Korakuen. Built around 1700 for the 5th Tokugawa Shogun, Rikugien literally means "six poems garden" and reproduces in miniature 88 scenes from famous poems. The garden is a good example of an Edo Period strolling garden and features a large central pond surrounded by manmade hills and forested areas, all connected by a network of trails.
