“Ikebukuro is a very nice place to walk around and enjoy the citylife”
Ikebukuro differs from the rest of Tokyo. With a huge pedestrian zone and lots of shops of every kind, Ikebukuro is good for shopping, looking for novel products or just walking around.
Near the station there is a great music store called Ishibashi where you can find lo's of guitars, as well as drums, pianos, keyboards, and other music equipment. You are allowed to test them all for free! A fantastic place for musicians who don't have their instrument with them but want to play.
