Head for the hipster heart of alternative Tokyo, where tiny streets burst with trendy vendors all manner of retro finds. You could shop till you drop at vintage shops like Garage Department Store, which stocks all kinds of funk, or you could sift through mountains of old CDs at Flash Disk, where the only school is old-school. If you’re hungry, you could choose from jazzy joints like City Country City, where good music meets even better coffee, or swap out for a cocktail at Shimokitazawa Mother, where Gaudi-esque decoration compliments fine Okinawan cuisine. And you’ll be thankful for your host’s insider knowledge when it comes to the chaos and creativity of Shimokitazawa Cage, an outdoor arts and food venue popular with Tokyo’s cool kids.
Enter the heart of Tokyo’s cultural scene in bohemian Shimokitazawa, one of west Tokyo’s trendy neighborhoods, where live music and hippie vibes rule daily life. With your host by your side, you’ll get the chance to discover this maze of eccentric art, indie music and hipster fashion, while taking in a very different Tokyo to the one you would have imagined. Take part in the lively coffee culture of Shimokita, as the locals call it, or go thrift shopping in the area’s best vintage stores. Explore the hustle and bustle around the local station, where locals gather to enjoy the slow life, or wait for the sun to go down and jam to a local band with a hot bowl of soba noodles in one hand, and some smooth sake in the other.
