Back in July, I started a new photo series "In the Summer" where we took a look at what various places around Tokyo looked like during the baking hot season.
I thought It only made sense to share what its like in this freezing cold Winter season - introducing the "In the Winter" photo series! Today we take a look around the Ikebukuro area.
Ikebukuro is a lively shopping district filled with restaurants and is also home to stores like Tokyu Hands (hardware and lifestyle goods) and also otaku stores like Animate, Gamers and Toranoana.
Most of the stuff to be seen is on the East Exit side of Ikebukuro station which is on the JR Yamanote line.
