Kichijōji is a neighborhood in the city of Musashino in Tokyo, Japan. It is centered on a compact but popular commercial area to the north of its train station and to the south a little, it has artistic and fashionable shops and restaurants and coffee houses, from discount to high end. Kichijōji Station is served by the Chūō Line which runs to Tokyo central station in just in 30 minutes, Sobu Line, Tozai Line and is a terminus of the Keiō Inokashira Line, which takes passengers as far as Shibuya, another fashionable shopping center in Tokyo; the area is one of the most popular areas for younger people to spend their weekends, because it features one of Tokyo's most varied and complete shopping areas, as well as the constantly crowded Inokashira Park and its zoo. Evidence of its popularity is that it's been voted the number 1 place that people in Japan wish they would live, every year since the 1990s according to polls by the magazine CNN GO; this town was named after the Kichijō-ji Temple, located in Bunkyō City, before being destroyed by fire in the year 1657.
This temple, in turn, derived its name from the Hindu goddess Lakshmi, corresponding to Kisshōten in Japan. During the Great fire of Meireki, the town in front of Suwazan Kichijō-ji Temple gate, Edo's Hongo Motomachi was destroyed by fire. Afterwards, based on town planning, the shogunate rebuilt the area for daimyō residences. Since the residents who used to live in front of Kichijo-ji gate had suffered great loss of residence and farm land, the shogunate's official reed lands named "Reno" and "Mureno" were provided as substitute land for them; those hoping to apply were given a rice stipend and house construction loans with a 5 year limit. Kichijo-ji samurai, Sato Sadaemon and Miyazaki Jinemon, in cooperation with local farmer Matsui Jurozaemon, opened up the eastern district of present day Musashino and relocated the residents there. Soon after, with the opening of the Tamagawa Aqueduct, the poorly watered uninhabited Musashino Plateau was cultivated, turning it into a vast farmland. In the process, the neatly partitioned thin rectangular shaped plots of land along Itsukaichi Kaidō were formed.
Some migrants were granted great lengths of land of more than 1000 meters long in the land area extending from Itsukaichi Kaidō to the Tamagawa Aqueduct, up to where the Senkawa Aqueduct divides. But the soil was not fertile, so all of the farmland became dry soil fields, with no wet rice fields; because of the residents who still had attachment to the former Kichijo-ji, the new fields were named Kichijōji Village. The neighborhood is dominated by a shopping district centered on a covered street, Sun Road, which extends north from Kichijōji Station; this well organized and clean area includes amenities, shops and restaurants. Halfway up this shopping street is the Buddhist temple Gessō-ji, with graveyard, at the northern end of it are Shinto shrines, the latter holding the occasional festival, with amusements such as fishing for gold fish, sweet food stalls, typical dishes.

Kōenji is a district of Tokyo in Suginami ward, west of Shinjuku. The district is named after some old temples in the area. Kōenji is a community with easy access to Shinjuku and Tokyo Stations, it was unaffected by the 1980s building boom and therefore many of the houses and shops in the area are small and reflect the character of pre-boom Japan. Due to its aging retail district and location on a major commuter route, the station area has become a center for small restaurants and "Live Houses" which offer live music, it is known for having a young population and as a center for suburban underground culture including multiple used record and clothing shops. In 2006, when the Japanese PSE law went into effect restricting the sale of electronic goods built before 2001, Kōenji was chosen as the site for a protest due to its active "retro" culture and used equipment shops; the current division of Kōenji into north and south around Kōenji Station is a post-war arrangement. The whole area surrounding Shukuhōzan Kōenji temple used to be called "Kōenji".
There used to be a town called Mabashi between Kōenji and nearby Asagaya, which has since been absorbed into Kōenji, although the name "Mabashi" is retained in some schools and shrines. After Harajuku and Shimokitazawa, Kōenji is the best-known area in Tokyo for used clothing shopping; the majority of the stores are on or near Look Shōtengai. South of the station is the "PAL" shopping arcade filled with many food and discount goods shops. North of the station there are two main shopping streets filled with used record shops and cafes. West of the station, both north and under the tracks are many small yakitori restaurants and bars; the station itself was renovated in 2006, a brand new Hotel Mets opened at the northern entrance in March 2007. Between independent grocers and convenience chain stores there are several large supermarkets, including Queen's Isetan. Dozens of yakitori restaurants, ramen noodle restaurants, bars can be found in the streets and alleys of both north and south Kōenji, as well as under the elevated tracks near the JR station.
Each year in late August the Kōenji Awa Odori festival is held over two days. This is becoming a major tourist attraction for the area, it is the second largest Awa Dance Festival in Japan, with an average of 188 groups composed of 12,000 dancers, attracting 1.2 million visitors over the course of the weekend. The festival was adopted by Kōenji post-war, it involves a procession of groups performing traditional music and dance, is enjoyed by a wide variety of people. The procession weaves its way through the streets on both sides of Kōenji Station with a dramatic conclusion at the "finish line". There are several parks in the area, including Sanshi-no-mori, Mabashi Kōen, Wadabori Kōen. Wadabori Kōen is the best in the immediate area for viewing cherry blossom in spring, or for a stroll; the Kōenji area is accessible by the Tokyo Metro Marunouchi Line. The major roads Waseda Dōri, Kannana Dōri and Ōme Kaidō pass through the suburb; the area appeared in the movie Nobody Knows. It is the setting for Haruki Murakami's novel, 1Q84.
It is the namesake of the progressive rock/Zeuhl band Kōenji Hyakkei. It is referenced in the lyrics to English indie band Martha's single "Heart is Healing". Koenji Navi 高円寺純情商店街 Kōenji shopping area. 宿鳳山高円寺 Shukuhōzan Kōenji temple, after which Kōenji takes its name
