It's situated near the East exit of Ikebukero Station about a two minute walk Plenty of shops putting it mildly It's near Sunshine city and Tokyu Hands Dept store You won't need your GPS to find it! Loads of reasonably priced restaurants with English menus

Good for shopping, not as crowded as Shinjuku. A nice place to spend couple hours. You can pretty much find all the things in this street. Nice food and shopping area.
