A few stops out from Shinjuku, this area has narrow streets, packed with alternative shops, cafes and bars. Quite a cool place to visit by day or night. Several very tiny bars (less then 10 persons capacity) by the railway line.

This is supposed to be a hipster place, but the stores mainly sell second hand stuff. Small lanes with cafes and shops. I much prefer Nakameguro.

This place is really nice, if you want to see a different view of Tokyo, not only the stereotypical quarters like Shibuya, Shinjuku or Akihabara (although they are interesting too). You can find cozy bars, small restaurants, second hand shops and more. Only little problem...More

The town is filled with small theaters. You may enjoy straight plays, comedies, dance or music performances. It’s just like the Off Off Broadway in New York. Find the next generation stars here.

Just on the other side of the rails og Shimo-Kitazawa Station you’ll find a big area with second hand designer clothes and new original shoes and clothes. Prices below European level.

Shimo-Kitazawa is my new favorite place in Tokyo! Only a few stops from Shibuya/Shinjuku via train, Shimo-Kitazawa has a lot of vintage shops, some bargain shops, and eateries. It’s so relaxing to just walk around see what they have. Would definitely recommend others to go...More

Shimokitazawa is only 1 stop from Shibuya on the Express train but it has a very different vibe - small streets, low buildings, lots of individual businesses rather than chains so it's great to spend time wandering around. Loads of great restaurants, cafes and bars....More

We started our Japanese journey exploring this neighbourhood. It's so gentle and hipster. Lots of good coffee and tapioca drinks. The streets are lined with op shops, and other specialty boutiques, but beware, the prices are comparable to brand new. I love it though, stores...More

SHIMOKITAZAWA is not a restaurant name, but a name of the town in Setagaya city.
