Tokyo, Japan for Exciting Neighborhood of Koenji

Already established as one of the coolest areas in Tokyo, Koenji should definitely be marked on maps of all those who are interested to see vibrant nightlife outside of the already familiar (and oftentimes, overwhelming) spots such as Shibuya, Shinjuku and Harajuku.
