Jiyugaoka – Shop Distribution

How many shops are within walking distance?  While Jiyugaoka.net lists 1,937 shops*, not all of them are close to Jiyugaoka Station.  It appears that roughly 3/4 of these are within 6 minutes of the station, but the distribution varies; super markets are more evenly spread, while restaurants are highly clustered.

*This includes public facilities, service businesses, parks, and over a thousand listings under “gourmet“.  This allows a rough estimate of 750 restaurants, bars, and coffee shops within a 6 minute walk of the station.  If we want to compare Jiyugaoka to Manhattan, we can find this on WalkScore.com: “Little Italy is the most walkable neighborhood in New York […] People in Little Italy can walk to an average of 187 restaurants, bars and coffee shops in 5 minutes.”
