Seijogakuenmae

  Sep 14th, 2010

Seijogakuenmae (Seijo) is a family orientated station on the Odakyu Line, running to Shinjuku. It is a very relaxed and green area of Tokyo with plenty of charm about its narrow shady lanes and streets.

This is my image of Seiji. A leafy suburb with trees overhanging the clean narrow roads. This area of town is peaceful and laid back but very well organized

The train lines looked more like a highway here. The train enters a tunnel type structure before arriving at the station

    Is normal to have a building with different kind of shops and listed outside like that?

    1. shibuya246 says:

      yes, this is quote a normal thing. There are often big signboards showing the different tenants in the building like this. 🙂 I’ll try and grab some more photos of these type of boards next time.

    So glad to see that you’re back in action after a while! Damn those hackers! But boy, you sure are going all over the place lately; I have some catching up to do!! hahaha 🙂 Will be heading back to Tokyo this November for a two week stay, but I think I`ll dedicate a few days to seeing these kind of spots that you’re showing us that are “off the radar” so to speak; Shibuya246.com proving to bet every damn Gaijin info center there is! This looks like a very peaceful neighborhood, a lovely stroll in the afternoon.

    ah brings back good memories of the area. I’d love if you took a trip over to my old neighborhood of chitosefunabashi and snapped a few pics.

    1. Shibuya246 says:

      Sounds like a good idea. I will try and get out that way shortly 🙂
