The four story shopping center right next to the Kyodo station is Kyodo Corty. Climb the stairs to the fourth floor and you will find a spacious rooftop garden waiting for you. From here you can watch the Odakyu line trains running right below, and on fine days you can even see Tokyo Skytree and Mount Fuji. Kyodo Corty is a space where you can relax and enjoy shopping and good food.
When you leave the central exit of Seijogakuen-mae Station you will find a bright open space right in front of you, with stairs and an escalator leading upwards. Go up the escalator to the 2nd floor, and you will find a wide array of fashionable shops waiting for you, including a large bookstore, furniture stores and fashionable boutiques selling accessories from all over Japan. Seijo Corty is built right on top of Seijogakuen-mae station, so from the rooftop garden on the eastern side, you can look out and watch the trains running straight off into the distance.
Vinawalk is the name of a large shopping center in front of Ebina station. It is a colorful mall, with many original shops. Out of these, we would like to recommend the model train specialty store "Popondetta with Odakyu Train Gallery". After looking at the large diorama, with model trains running freely over its many tracks, and the display corner which features a drivers seat and controls taken from an actual Odakyu Line Train, you will feel a little bit like a railway expert yourself.
