You’ll join a host and head southwest of bustling Shibuya, to Sangenjaya, a much more laid-back neighborhood where time slows down just enough for you to appreciate this very different side of Tokyo. Your local host will lead you upward from the local station, where Carrot Tower offers incredible views of the cityscape that’ll give you the lay of the land. Munch on local bites at places like Gyoza Shack, where delicious dumplings are served hot and cheap, or sip on some fine sake at Orbit, a live music joint packed with vintage arcade games. If it’s art you’re after, try to make sense of the exhibitions at the 233 Gallery and the performances at Setagaya Public Theatre, or spend your day sifting through record stores and thrift shops.
Embrace all things hip and alternative in Sangenjaya, one of Tokyo’s trendiest districts, and discover all its popular hangouts and secret spots with a local host guiding the way. Integrate with the area’s artsy crowd and take in the countryside aesthetics that make it so popular with those escaping the modernity of nearby Shibuya, a chaotic business district. Explore an array of streets lined with petite eateries and stylish bars where Tokyo’s finest spend their days sipping tea and enjoying the lively art scene. Your host might also lead you to the older parts of the neighborhood, where vintage style meets contemporary trends, and where time moves a little slower than elsewhere in Tokyo...
