A quiet suburb on the JR Chūō Line

Higashi-Koganei, a Tokyo suburb on the JR Chūō Line, is a popular place of residence for locals and tourists alike, due to both its peacefulness and proximity to the centre of the city (JR Higashi-Koganei Station is only about 20 minutes from Shinjuku Station).

Some people love the surroundings so much they stay for varying lengths of time in the nearby share house
