Ikebukuro has been often selected for the shooting for TV series and a scene of novels, and as a result young people who are keen on trends cast eager eyes on Ikebukuro. It is divided by JR Ikebukuro Station into the west side and east side areas.

On the eastern side department, stores and large fashion industry buildings stand side by side. One example is the Sunshine City area around the super-high-rising building, Sunshine 60, which is on the east of the shopping street leading to the station. Also, within in the Sunshine City area, a planetarium, a hotel, a shopping mall and a convention center with exhibition facilities(Information by JNTO) and etc. are all over.
