The longest covered shopping arcade in Japan, the 800m Musashi Koyama Palm begins right outside Musashi-Koyama Station’s east exit, and stretches all the way to Nakahara-kaido, towards Nishi-Koyama. Although the 250 shops are dominated by chain restaurants and stores, there’s still room for some great independents. Toriyuu has been around for about 90 years and serves delicious yakitori chicken skewers (¥150 each). At Osama to Strawberry you can get their famous 60cm tall and 3.5kg-heavy king parfait, while homemade Italian gelato is the speciality of Takeya Dessert Inn. End the day by getting your feline fix at Cat Snack, a bar packed with moggies. The Palm’s roof makes it a great choice for rainy days – just remember to not ride your bike here, as the street is for pedestrians only.
