Nerima

A visit to this Tokyo district is a must for cartoon lovers, as it has an important role in anime history and remains the site of anime studios today.

Nerima is a busy Tokyo district with a largely local focus rather than one with tourist appeal. Nevertheless, you will find lots here to keep you entertained, especially if you have an interest in anime. The neighborhood is also packed with wonderful places to eat, as well as vending machines dispensing everything from chocolate to cabbage.

The neighborhood is best known as the place where the famous Nerima Daikon Brothers anime was created in 2006. It is also where the blue robot cat Doraemon, one of the anime characters most recognized all over the world, was invented. Several different anime studios are located here.

Wander around the neighborhood to view the exteriors of Studio Gallop, Toei Animation studios and AIC studios. If you know your anime well, you can also spot real-life locations that have appeared in various TV shows. Visit Oizumi Anime Gate, at the north exit of Oizumigakuen station, to see a collection of statues of famous anime characters.

In addition to anime, the neighborhood has many other draws for visitors. Head to Toshimaen Amusement Park for a family-friendly day out filled with plenty of thrilling rides and video games. The water park on site is perfect for cooling down on hot days.

Another popular attraction that can be enjoyed by adults and kids is the Chihiro Art Museum. The museum is dedicated to painter and illustrator Chihiro Iwasaka and displays her beautiful picture books as well as her artworks designed for children. The museum is set within a pretty red building that has a charming café. Different kinds of events are also hosted here regularly.

Nerima has several different subway stations, meaning that it is easily reachable from anywhere in the city. Get the subway to the Nerima station and exit onto the area’s main pedestrian street and dining hub, Chuo Street.
