Toshima Travel Guide: 3 reviews and 1 photos


Ikebukuro is no doubt the most popular area in Toshima-ku for sure. Sunshine City complex with Sunshine Aquarium and Ancient Orient Museum has some of the most popular tourist attractions. Ikebukuro area has some historical sites as well. Particularly, Zojigaya Cemetary is one of the top 3 cemetaries in Tokyo along with Aoyama, and Yanaka. Zojigaya is popular because there are some tombs of litarary figures such as Lafcadio Hearn, Soseki Natsume and Kyoka Izumi.

Next Ikebukuro and Toshima-ku trip: Zoshigaya Cemetary, and visiting temples near Ikebukuro Station.

    Zoshigaya Cemetary is great and the pamphlet guides of famous people's graves makes it easy to navigate!
