The Gate to Koenji’s North
A few steps across from the north exit of JR Koenji Station stands the arch to north Koenji and the entrance to one of the neighborhood’s most popular shopping areas, Junjo Shotengai. As with the other shotengai (shopping streets) in Koenji, it is filled with restaurants, bars, “live houses”, and second hand stores, making it a go-to location for a variety of entertainment 7 days a week; Matsunoki Shokudo, Bungo Sashimi/Grill, Gaburi Chicken, Penguin Live House, and Mode Off are some notables. And being the entry point to north Koenji, it is also a convenient way to access the other fun-filled shopping streets such as Koshin Dori to the West and Azuma Dori to the East.
ACCESS & SHOPS
