Festivals, Events, Tourist Spots



Restaurants

  • Denny's - For all of your post-night-out pancake needs. Open 24 hours a day, son! 3 Chome-1 3-4 Nishihatsuishi, near Hatsuishi Station. Across the street there is a Saizeriya, if you're looking for something vaguely resembling Italian cuisine.
  • Nagareyama Otakanomori SC has, perhaps, the largest concentration of restaurants in Nagareyama. All sorts of options like sushi, Korean food, Chinese food, soba, donkatsu, etc. A nice place to impress a date without (usually) destroying your wallet.

Daily Life Resources


Shopping/Supermarkets

  • First of all, if you haven't been to Nagareyama Otakanomori SC, what's wrong with your life? By this point it may as well be the hub of the city. There are a lot of restaurants, shops (mostly clothing, but also stuff like Loft) , an arcade (get your 太鼓の達人 on), and a Toho Cinema. Toho Cinema, by the way, is always under-capacity, so you can expect to have plenty of leg and arm room when taking in a movie there. If it's not already obvious, Otakanomori SC is conveniently accessible from Nagareyama Otakanomori Station.

Local Tips and Tricks/Misc.

  • Nagareyama Central Park (流山セントラルパーク) is a train station in the middle of a field. It is not to be confused with the more famous Central Park in New York.
  • Nagareyama has its own film commission, and as a result it can often be seen in Japanese films, dramas, and commercials.
