Located just outside the north exit of Kichijoji Station, this small alley is home to about 100 shops. The name “Harmonica Alley” is said to come from the fact that the line of small storefronts looks like the holes on a harmonica. Many of the shops sell delicious things to eat, so it’s a great place to stroll while sampling some of the delights. At night, red lanterns light the many izakayas (Japanese style pubs), which are a popular place to have a drink. With old shops that have been around for a long time and stylish new cafes, Harmonica Alley is great place for visitors to experience a good mix of old and new.


  • At night, red lanterns light the streets as the area comes to life with people enjoying drinks at the many izakayas.
  • A morning market is held on the third Sunday of every month (7:00 AM to 10:00 AM).
  • Enjoy the nostalgic atmosphere of an older Japanese neighborhood.
