You might see it in the right bottom picture. There are a Yakitori shop
and a Starbucks side by side. Yakitori is a traditional Japanese food which
is a spit-grilled chicken. You must know Starbucks coffee shops well.
As long as I know, there are four Starbucks in Kichijo-ji. They are in one
town, not one city. I feel that it is a little too many. Not only Starbucks,
there are other chain coffee shops like Doutor and St. Marc. I know the
place where three different types of coffee chain shops on one street. But,
every shop seems to be filled with customers recently. And also, there are
many original types of coffee shops in Kichijo-ji. And, if you walk well,
you can still find both old and new aspects of Japan.
