Tokyo city guide

Tokyo - West Tokyo (PDF Chapter)

11th Edition Aug 2017

This is the West Tokyo chapter from Lonely Planet’s Tokyo guidebook.

West Tokyo is defined by the largely residential neighbourhoods along the Chūō line. Most of the neighbourhoods here have nomiyagai, strips crammed with tiny bars and restaurants that come alive in the evenings – proof that these suburbs are anything but sleepy.

  • delight in the creativity of Japan’s legendary animator, Miyazaki Hayao, and savour the magic and wonder of his films in Ghibli Museum, which he designed.
  • maps
  • amble through the woodsy grounds of beloved Inokashira-kōen, past buskers and performance artists, and pay your respects to the sea goddess enshrined here.
  • transport
  • wander the halls of Nakano Broadway, a vintage 1960s shopping mall that is a collectors’ paradise and favourite of otaku (fans of anime and manga).
  • restaurants & bars

Coverage includes: Neighbourhood Top Five, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment, Shopping.
