New installment of the the Tokyo night walk posts! :D
Today we will go into the streets of Ikebukuro, one of the biggest shopping areas in Tokyo. It is also very known because here take places the manga series Ikebukuro West Gate Park and Durarara!!.
Start of the walk at Ikebukuro train station. This is the second most transited station in the world with more than 3 million daily passengers (only behind Shinjuku Station, also located in Tokyo).
Exploring the surroundings of Ikebukuro Station ^^.
More department stores in this part of the street.
In this area of Ikebukuro I found that many firemen went for taking off a fire on a building. The number of firemen was probably a bit excessive for the small size of the fire.
Huge ladder truck.
Some media covering the fire incident in Ikebukuro.
The last part of the Ikebukuro walk took place inside the Animate store. You can see photos of how this kind of store looks like in the Akihabara Animate post.
Front size of the Ikebukuro Animate building.
The Animate store has many gashapon machines in the street.
Coffee truck ^^.
Inside Animate we found a small exhibition about B's Log magazine, a big bestseller in Japan. We stayed a lot of time in the store... ^^
I hope you enjoyed with all this pictures of Ikebukuro ^^.
