Tokyo events for Monday, July 22 to Sunday, July 28, 2019
With a series of massive department stores, and an almost Shinjuku like density of izakayas, bars restaurants and shops, Tachikawa is one of the busiest stops in West Tokyo. Although by Tokyo standards West Tokyo isn’t really the place to be, being a major stop on three railway lines (JR Chou, Nambu line and the Tama Toshi monorail) means its certainly on the map as a place to go for those in the surrounding area.
One of Tokyo’s largest public parks – Showa Memorial park – lies 10 minutes walk from the station.
There’s plenty to keep oneself entertained in Tachikawa and the Nambu line also serves as a handy shortcut to head south towards Kanagawa and it’s beaches.
