See the Tokyo Guide ›'s insider take:

Kichijoji is just a short, 20-minute subway ride from Shibuya, but it feels worlds apart from the bustling, neon-signed city center. The jewel in the crown of the charming neighborhood is Inokashira Park, with enough cherry blossoms in its 94 acres to make it one of the top hanami-viewing spots in Tokyo come early April. There is, however, plenty to keep you occupied year-round: In addition to a temple overlooking the Edo-era pond and the excellent, kid-friendly Ghibli Museum (tickets are issued with a specific entrance time, so be sure to book in advance), the streets leading up to the park are filled with shops and cafés befitting the neighborhood's bohemian residents. If the line at iconic yakitori spot Iseya is too long, Hachiju Hatiya's soaring ceilings and diverse menu make for an enjoyable, leisurely alternative.—Rebecca Willa Davis
