The Ikebukuro West Exit Park became famous as the main location in the TV drama “Ikebukuro West Gate Park” aired in 2000.This drama was written by Ira Ishida’s novel, starring Tomoya Nagase and the script was Kankuro Kudo.
Many of the performers are still active, including Ai Kato, Tomohisa Yamashita, Satoshi Tsumabuki, Ken Watanabe, Kosetsu, Kazuo Takahashi, Sadao Abe, Norini SakaGUCHI and others.
The story is a street suspense in which, around the Ikebukuro West Exit Park (West Gate Park), the hero of the main character, Makoto, who often gathered with his friends, resolved to solve a difficult incident by the police, with the help of the gang group “G-BOY Z.”.
Aside from this drama, this Ikebukuro West Exit Park is famous for its appearance in the 1 episodes of ULTRAMAN GAIA and the important scenes of the final story.
Currently, the Ikebukuro West Exit Park is being redeveloped.I might feel a bit lonely for those who have come to mind with these dramas.However, we hope that the newly reborn park will also appear in some dramas and commercials.

In Toshima City, where Ikebukuro is located, it is moving toward the “full smoking cessation” of the park.In the Ikebukuro West Exit Park, there was a loose smoking space, and there was a loose smoking space, but this was not the case.I am currently under construction, and I don’t know about the smoking area, but the official website on the Toshima City’s official website doesn’t contain the smoking room in the Ikebukuro West Exit Park.
Appeal and Fun

The Ikebukuro West Exit Park is a little far from the downtown, so it has a calm atmosphere, so it was a good place to take a rest on the bench.It was also used as a meeting place as it was located in an easy place next to the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Space.
And in Ikebukuro West Exit Park, various events have been held so far.Recently, an opera was performed as one of Tokyo Arts festival events in Tokyo, with 3 sentences.The admission fee for opera is 500 yen.It was also an event with a free Ferris seat.Many people were gathered to see the outdoor opera.
During Golden Week, an event called “Gathering in Ikebukuro, Everyone’s Street Performance” was held to show various street performances such as acrobatic performance, heartbreaking comedy, and chalk art.It was an event that both adults and small children could enjoy.
The event will be held after the redevelopment.Why don’t we check the event information and go out to the Ikebukuro West Exit Park?
There are not many trains in Ikebukuro West Exit Park, but there is a cherry tree, and visitors to the park and visitors to Tokyo Metropolitan Art Space have a spot where they can enjoy viewing cherry blossoms.It was a spot where night cherry trees could also be enjoyed, in the night, under the light of the lights of the town, lighting of the buildings of the fountain and the lighting of the building of the art theater.
Cherry trees are depicted in the image of the re-development of the Ikebukuro West Exit Park, so it can be expected to become a spot for viewing cherry blossoms after the redevelopment.
The Ikebukuro West Exit Park is close to Ikebukuro Station, so there are many shops in the area.The easiest way to get there is the cafe in the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Space next to it.The recommended cafe is “Bell Orb.”.It is a beer cafe that deals with Belgian beer, but besides beer there is also a lunch and sweets menu, and it is a popular restaurant.
