Editor’s Note

After walking aroung Ikebukuro.....

The arcade center of east exit are crowded with people although it is a weekday.
Not only the restaurant and amusement, but there are many shops that everyone could enjoy their shopping also. So, we do not surprise why there are so many people here.
We are very enjoy when we could find the owl that was set in many places.

You also could enjoy with different atmosphere of the town just by walking out from the different exit of the station that we believe that it will make your everyday life become interesting if you live here.
