Getting There & Away
- Train The JR Sōbu (local) and Chūō (rapid) lines run on the same tracks (abbreviated as the Chūō-Sōbu line), heading west from Shinjuku to Nakano, Kōenji, Asagaya, Ogikubo, Nishi-Ogikubo Kichijōji and Mitaka (in that order); only Kōenji is a local-train-only stop. Beware of the 'special' rapid and 'Ome liner' trains, which go nonstop from Shinjuku to Mitaka. The Keiō Inokashira line runs from Shibuya to Kichijōji, stopping at Inokashira-kōen-mae (for the park).
- Subway The Marunouchi line runs from Shinjuku to Ogikubo, south of the Sōbu-Chūō line.
