Why Rise Shopping Center is special ?
Built along the pedestrian walkway connecting Futako-Tamagawa Station with this park, southern Tokyo's new hotspot opened in April 2015 and includes rental giant Tsutaya's new concept bookstore, along with the same brand's first-ever electronics shop, a 10-screen cinema complex, a fully equipped gym and pool, and more shops than most people can look through over a single weekend. Expect this one to become every northern Kanagawa-ite's new favourite tourist destination.
Located at Futakotamagawa station, which has the river running next to it, the same river that has a fantastic fireworks show during the Summer. Rise is full of all kinds of things, even a fancy movie theater that has IMAX. The design is so good. It is so nice be in a Tokyo mall that allows for wide spaces. You can walk around without feeling crowded, like most of the other malls.

Tips for you
I came to Futako to buy coffee at Super Seijo Ishii. Seijo is a supermarket that sells Japanese and foreign products. And there is Takashimaya, a department store, where you can buy all kinds of brands. Around Futako, there are many supermarkets where you can buy food with a reasonable price. It is also an international town that Western people prefer to live in with their Japanese spouses. One of my favorite towns. Futako is residential area, 20 minutes west of Shibuya by Denentoshi Line. Shibuya is a shopping town for all generations while Futako is a town for family people. Futako has this shopping area and parks, a river, forest… Good place to live in Tokyo as you can go to the business area in Tokyo in about 30 -40 minutes. Not a tourist town, but better to visit.
Although Futako-tamagawa is loved by the nickname of "Futako" from ancient times, it is called "Nikotama" these days. Although it was a town in the quiet suburbs only with Takashimaya, after a Rise shopping center starts business three years ago, it is being crowded with the shopper. Since many shoppers come by a car from the suburbs further, severe traffic congestion occurs during the weekend.
