Nishi-taishidō Station is located just 300 meters from Sangen-jaya Station. However, despite this proximity, the area around the station is a quiet residential district that contrasts with the bustling Sangen-jaya. With many popular patisseries and restaurants in its back alleys, it is a fun place for walking and discovering that special shop.
