The Shops of Central Road

South exit from Koenji station,
Turn left,
Keep going past McDonalds and the Mizuho Bank ATM,
You will come to Central Road.
At the top, it's a bit seedy, with what could be described as Koenji's red light area, or one of them anyway:

Once past that, you got some small bars, restaurants, Japan's only Tesco's(!), junk shops, and some of the best decorated shop fronts in Tokyo.
This is just two of them:
Nincompoop Capacity and Garter.
Someone's let their creative juices flow with these.

Bus Stop 2

Those nice chaps doing construction of the road and bus stops outside of the North exit have kindly placed another inflatable on display.
They gave us a dolphin this time.

Bit ironic they should choose a dolphin, considering Japan's horrific annual slaughter of thousands of dolphins in about a months time.
