Best Things To Do In Futako Tamagawa

Madeleine Ray

You may be planning your big Shibuya or Akihabara adventure, but what if you take the train a few stops further and explore this hidden gem neighborhood. Futako Tamagawa, or more casually known as "Nikotama" is a contemporary oasis of fine cuisine, high-end shopping, and stunning natural scenery. Explore the sprawling Hyogojima park, shop until you drop at the famous Nikotama Rise shopping center, or get lost in a comforting book with a cup of coffee at Tsutaya Electrics, whatever you seek to explore- Nikotama has the place.
