December 12, 2012 - The cozy places in Tokyo - Kunitachi, Tokyo

Kunitachi is a station on the Chuo line, about 30 minutes from Shinjuku. It is famous for being a town for students - there are three big universities: Hitotsubashi University, Kunitachi College of Music, and Yusei University, as well as three high schools, Kunitachi High School, Toho High School, and the Fifth Commercial High School.

In the spring, the Daigaku-doori (University Street) becomes filled with cherry blossoms, making it a great attraction in the spring (the peak blooming season is late March to early April), and also the autumn for the changing autumn leaves (mid-late November).

The city is also filled with small shops and great restaurants, making it a great place to spend a relaxing afternoon.

The famous Daigaku-doori, home to many tiny shops and small restaurants.
Daigaku-doori, or University street, is a long, wide street connected to Kunitachi station. In the spring, university and high school students ring in the new academic year under the cherry blossoms, while in autumn, return to yet another semester of school under the beautiful autumn foliage. It is home to many tiny shops - little gift shops and clothing shops - as well as cafes and small, cozy restaurants and cafes. A place worth visiting for those who want a day or an afternoon away from the super-urban atmosphere of central Tokyo.

Curry Rice @ Ro-jina Sabou
A very old-fashioned Japanese style Kissaten (Cafe), just a three minute walk from Kunitachi Station. Their most famous Zai-Curry dish is one-of-a-kind and a must-try for spicy food lovers. Aside from this dish, there are many types of pasta, pizza, and Japanese curry-rice dishes.

Location: 1-9-42 Naka, Kunitachi-city, Tokyo
Open hours: 9:00〜23:00(Last Order at 22:30)

Huge Tempura-don
For those who want to experience a more traditional Japanese style meal, Tsuribune is the place to go. Tempura - ranging from all kinds of seafood to vegetables - placed on top of a bowl of rice is sure to fill you up after a tiring day. Prices for lunch and dinner are the same and very reasonable, ranging from around 750 ~ 1200 yen.

Location: Shirano Building 2nd Floor, 1-15-18 Higashi, Kunitachi-shi, Tokyo
Business Hours: 11:30 - 14:00 / 17:00 - 23:00

The famous Suta-don (short for "Stamina"-don)
Any traveler visiting Japan is bound to like the Suta-don - it's meat and vegetables on a huge bowl of rice. If you aren't into seafood and the different types of vegetables in Japan, you're sure to love the flavor of the Suta-don. While there are many places around Tokyo where you can try the Suta-don, this shop in particular is its birthplace. Besides the Suta-don, you can try other dishes like ramen (also comes in huge, not-so-Japanese size.) and fried rice.

Location: 2-10-4 Nishi, Kunitachi-shi, Tokyo
Business Hours: 11:00 ~ 23:00
