Panorama TOKYO : Ikebukuro  

Downtown Ikebukuro is filled with department stores, shopping centers and amusement facilities. That is also "Culture Town" with a lot of large bookstores, museums and theaters. JR Ikebukuro Station is a big transfer station connected with four private railways. At the north of the station, the Ikebukuro-ohashi Bridge spans tracks.

You can enjoy viewing the skyline of Ikebukuro with the high-rise building Sunshine 60 from the bridge. And you can get the distant view of high-rises at Shinjuku too. Especially you have a nice time at twilight here, but with some traffic noises.
