Kichijōji is a neighborhood in the city of Musashino in Tokyo, Japan. It is centered on the commercial area to the north of its train station and has a youthful, artistic, slightly countercultural reputation. Kichijōji Station is served by the Chūō Line, Sobu Line, Tozai Line and is also a terminus of the Keiō Inokashira Line, which takes passengers as far as Shibuya. The area is one of the most popular areas for younger people to spend their weekend, because it features one of Tokyo's most varied and complete shopping areas, as well as the almost constantly crowded Inokashira Park together with its zoo. Supporting the fact of its popularity is that it's been voted to the number 1 place every year where people in Japan wish they would live since poll started in 2004.EconomyThe neighborhood is dominated by a shopping district centered on a covered street, Sun Road, which extends from Kichijōji Station to the north. This well organized and clean area includes amenities, shops, entertainment and restaurants.Half way up this shopping street is the Buddhist temple Gessō-ji (月窓寺), with graveyard, and at the northern end of it are Shinto shrines, the latter holding the occasional festival, with amusements such as fishing for gold fish, sweet food stalls, and typical dishes.
