Tenjin Street Store Association
The Tenjin Street Store Association is located along the front approach to Fudaten Shrine, where visitors come to pray for blessings to do well at school or prosper in business. Monuments of specters are placed at every turn along the shopping street. Especially famous are "Kitaro putting Medama Oyaji in his hand," "Lying Nezumi Otoko," "Neko Musume riding on Ittan-momen," and "Nurikabe sitting on a stump."

Harmonica Alley is a cluster of about a hundred stores and restaurants, some old and some new, arranged neatly together in the narrow lanes in front of the north exit of Kichijoji Station. The orderly alignment of shop fronts resembles the mouthpiece of a harmonica—hence the name. Harmonica Alley is a popular tourist spot with a unique and chic mood.
