10 Historic Sites in Ikebukuro That You Shouldn't Miss

August 23, 2021 Major Galusha

Tradition collides with pop culture in Tokyo, where you can reverently wander ancient temples before rocking out at a karaoke bar. Wake up before the sun to catch the lively fish auction at the Tsukiji Market, then refresh with a walk beneath the cherry blossom trees that line the Sumida River. Spend some time in the beautiful East Gardens of the Imperial Palace, then brush up on your Japanese history at the Edo-Tokyo Museum. Don’t forget to eat as much sushi, udon noodles, and wagashi (Japanese sweets) as your belly can handle.

Jiyu Gakuen Myonichikan

Reviewed By Swarovski - Melbourne, Australia

It is amazing to see a FLW design in Tokyo and his design is so recognizable throughout this well preserved old building. It was originally started as a school for girls and now it is used for lectures and seminars. There are some early photos - a bit like a museum - but the day we visited there was a lecture on. Just a 5 or 10 minute walk from JR Ikebukuro Station.
