Ikebukuro

English

Located around the northwestern corner of the Yamanote line, Ikebukuro is one of Tokyo’s many city centers with over million passengers commuting daily via its main station. Stuck between two of Japan’s biggest store franchises Tobu and Seibu, Ikebukuro has many things to offer ranging from nice stores and restaurants to other activities.
While not as popular as Akihabara for example, Ikebukuro is, however, an important hub for the female otaku culture with many “butler cafes” as well as many stores dedicated to the anime, manga and cosplay scenes.

Français

Situé dans la zone nord ouest de la ligne Yamanote, Ikebukuro est l’un de ces nombreux “centres villes” que compte Tokyo où plus d’un million de voyageurs passent chaque jour via sa gare principale. Coincé entre les deux grandes franchises japonaises que sont Tobu et Seibu, Ikebukuro a beaucoup de choses à offrir dont un vaste choix de boutiques et de restaurants, ainsi que d’autres activités.

Sans la réputation d’être aussi branché qu’Akihabara par exemple, Ikebukuro demeure cependant l’endroit incontournable pour suivre la tendance féminine otaku avec ses nombreux “butler cafes” ainsi que ses magasins dédiés aux animes, aux mangas, et au cosplay.
