Relaxing one day in old temple & botanical garden and comfortable town
Kichijouji is said to be the most comfortable town to live in in Tokyo
Why don't we go visit there to understand its reason directly?
Jindaiji is the second oldest temple in Tokyo following to Sensouji temple in Asakusa. Alongside of the street to the temple ,there are Soba noodle restaurants, sweets shops and a pottery shop where you can paint on and make your own cup At the entrance there is a character shop of a famous comic 'Ge Ge Ge no Kitarou ' by Shigeru Mizuki which is fun to visit
Also there is a botanical garden next to Jindaiji area where you can enjoy seasonal flowers and plants.
Kichijouji is the most popular town to live in in Tokyo. First we will meet at Mitaka station, take bus to Jindaiji ,have a leisurely walk there and, have Soba noodle lunch at Yuusui the most popular restaurant and then take a bus to Kichijouji. On the way you can see Ghibri museum and Inokashira park through the window Arriving Kichijouji let's take a look at Harmonica alley with many small bars and restaurants. At the end of this short trip why don't you drop in at one of them? Cheers!
