I am originally from Osaka and moved to Ikebukuro after university. I have already lived in Ikebukuro for more than 10 years and worked for travel industry more than 15 years as well. I love to walk in the city and to visit shrines and temples with eating local street foods. Ikebukuro area may not be chosen to visit for your first Japan trip, but there are many local and historical places. And it’s very interesting to learn the history of Ikebukuro.
