An Event Station for Enjoyment
Located just an 8-minute walk from Ikebukuro, tucked away between buildings and along a tranquil path, you’ll discover “Yorimichidokoro Fu,” an event space that invites you to drink, eat, and engage in conversation. Along the shelves against the walls, you’ll find a display of fine beverages and stylish ceramics and glasses from our partnered artists available for exhibition and purchase. This space is designed for adults to enjoy meaningful conversations and create a unique atmosphere.
At the back of the venue, you’ll find the counter of “Wasshoidokoro WAKU Betsuaturae,” a Japanese izakaya where you can indulge in the extraordinary experience of seasonal ingredients and sake in the heart of the city.

Ikebukuro Area InnovationNishiike Valley
Nishi-Ikebukuro, where “Yorimichi Dokoro Fuu” is located, is a complex area that brings together various spaces and services, including restaurants, shared spaces, and shared studios.
Embracing the concept of “co-creation,” the area is undergoing an innovative renovation, focusing on creating a “townhouse” where the enjoyment of open space takes precedence, rather than simply developing a conventional commercial facility.
