Nishitokyo (西東京市) is a city in Tokyo prefecture.

Understand[edit]

Nishitokyo is located in western Tokyo, about 30 minutes by train from Shinjuku. Like much of western Tokyo, it's largely residential, with businesses concentrated around the train stations. The area has a lot of small parks and trees, in contrast with central Tokyo, which has skyscrapers and a lot more concrete.

Get in[edit]

The only train line running through the city is the Seibu Shinjuku Line (西武新宿線), which ends in Shinjuku to the east and Hon-Kawagoe to the west.
