Regulars describe it as a "workers' paradise", at least that's how it was promoted. Young girls, students and residents of the northwestern suburbs of Tokyo meet there. It's a 60-storey building with lots of offices, but also a real city of attractions and shops. Apart from the Sunshine City Prince Ikebukuro Hotel, whose lobby is on the ground floor, the shopping mall is never ending and among the many attractions are an observatory, a museum of the ancient Orient, a video game center... This "paradise" was built on the site of the Sugamo prison, where some prisoners were hanged after World War II. This was the case of former Prime Minister Hideki Tōjō, responsible for the attack on Pearl Harbor and executed on December 23rd 1948. Today, the prison is just an old memory in this temple of leisure.
Namja Town is a fun theme park devoted entirely to food. Games and tastings are on the program.
The Konica Minolta Manten Planetarium offers an ideal setting for observing the sky from the comfort of your sofa. Aromatherapy sessions are held in the evenings.

Mazaria, an arcade and video game centre, attracts young and old alike.
