Have you already been to Shibuya, Harajuku and Akihabara? Still looking for another place for shopping? I didn’t know for long, that there is a big shopping mall in Ikebukuro. You have great opportunities there – from game centers, anime or cat cafes, aquariums, planetariums, amusement parks or just ordinary shops – you won’t get bored in Ikebukuro. If you have time, plan a day at Ikebukuro and watch out for Sunshine City. If you are a big Pokémon fan, it is almost a must! There is a Pokémon Center Mega in the building. There are also two amusement areas – J-World Tokyo and Namja Town – so if you are looking for fun with Ruffy, Son Goku or Naruto, this is the right place for you. Beside the fashion stores, you have a lot of cute shops like Kiddy Land or Ani Cute, which sells a wide selection of cute characters like Snoopy, Hello Kitty and Rilakkuma or the Donguri Garden is perfect for any Ghiblilover. This time I only went there for shopping and eating, however, I would love to go back and visit the Sky Circus, the aquarium, the planetarium or one of the amusement parks I mentioned.
