''Is Kichijoji the Only Place Where You Want to Live?'' (''Kichijouji dake ga Sumitai Machi desu ka?'' aka ''吉祥寺だけが住みたい街ですか?'') is an ongoing manga written by Makihirochi and first published in 2015. It is serialized in Young Magazine the 3rd.

The story centers on twin sisters Miyako and Tomiko Shigeta, who work as real estate agents in the Kichijoji neighborhood in Tokyo, an area that is consistently ranked #1 as the place where those already living in Tokyo want to live. The sisters assist women originally searching for an apartment in Kichijoji, but direct them to neighborhoods in Tokyo which are better suited to their individual needs. The story follows the worries of new clients as they move, the everyday life of the twins and showcases the charm of different Tokyo neighborhoods.

!!The manga provides examples of:

* AdultFear: Plenty from the clients looking for new homes. One woman moved because she was being stalked at her old place, one was scared because there wasn't a proper lock on her door, etc.
* AlwaysIdenticalTwins: Miyako and Tomiko, though Miyako has blonde hair which may be dyed.
* BigEater: Both the twins. The always order giant portions for themselves when they treat their clients to a bite to eat.
* ButtMonkey: Isao, the sisters' put upon cousin and secretary.
* ConvenientlyAnOrphan: The sisters' parents died in a car crash a few years earlier, which lead to them taking over their real estate business and sparking the story.
* EccentricMentor: Miyako and Tomiko to their clients. They drag them (often literally) round neighbourhoods they didn't ask to see, go off on long tangents and stuff themselves with local treats. And so far they've helped every one of their customers find the perfect home.
* EndOfAnAge: A major theme is how much Kichijoji is changing and being remade into a new town. The sisters often lament all the different things they miss from the old days.
* FoodPorn: All the snacks and dishes the sisters treat their clients to look mouth watering.
* GentleGiant: Both the twins but Tomiko in particular. She looks very intimidating thanks to her height, size and blank expression but she wouldn't hurt a fly.
* MyBelovedSmother: The mother in Chapter 21 basically takes over her daughter's search for a new home.
* MyGreatestFailure: Tomiko leaving the family dog indoors on a hot summer day, forgetting the air conditioner was on a timer. By the time she gets back, the poor thing has collapsed from heat stroke and dies shortly after. It haunts her even years later.
* PolarOppositeTwins: The sisters in demeanor most definitely. Miyako is loud, cheerful and extroverted while Tomiko is a quiet introvert. They do share some things in common though such as their love of heavy metal music.
* SceneryPorn: The most beautiful areas of Tokyo drawn in painstaking detail from real life.
* ShoutOut: On client compares the twins to [[Disney/BigHero6 Baymax]].
* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVsCynicism: Idealistic. It doesn't shy away from life's trials and tribulations (e.g. adultery, job loss, loneliness) but shows that each situation can have a happy ending.
* TheStoic: Tomiko, until someone mentions her late dog...
* YourCheatingHeart: Affairs and adultery are the reasons several clients have to move.
