Shimokitazawa is exactly like Camden Town of London UK in Tokyo Japan!

Vintage shops, wider range of variety retails and clothes as well as restaurants and cafe can be found here!

Great to place to explore for family with teenagers!

Alternative side of Tokyo

if you are and to retro clothing retro music format kind of strange performance arts and music, look no further. do your research to get the best advantage… Or show up and wander. Either way you will have a blast. just north and east of the train station or the best places to shop. samurai curry for the line and the taste. Bear pond coffee for the barista’s barista. And Shirube for everything else. Finish the night at the A sign bar.

Miss the last train. find a guitarist on the street and be the backup singer. We need you. come on by.

Do not bring kids, they’ll be bored. Otherwise, this is a place to get lost: cuisines from all parts of the world, vintage stores and unique vintage finds, hipster place. A must visit district in Tokyo. Totoro Cafe is also locates there

Shimokita always surprises me with great vintage stores. It is a good area to just stroll around and explore.

I had ten days to spend in Tokyo and this is easily the best place for just hanging out in. Lots of stalls and shops. Lovely temples, a fascinating graveyard and a great little upstairs shop where you can see lots of good Japanese steel cooking knives.

When I first moved here from Canada, this was my first home in Tokyo. It was the perfect middle-ground between the East and West, with its pop culture and heavy arts scene. Being in the music business, I felt right at home and fell in love with the place. It's gotten a huge face-lift in recent years--perhaps for the worse--and the maze-like station and its post-war era environs, which was its charm, has been replaced by something more metallic and stale, but the charm lives on in the outer peripheries of the city. Enjoy.

Shimokitazawa is a cool area with many vintage shops, independent coffee shops and cool buildings. If you want to experience second hand shops in Tokyo, this is the place to go! If you go on a Sunday it can be crowded but it makes for a good atmosphere.

This was a fun area to walk around. The specialty is vintage shops - mostly american clothing. Lots of boutiques, restaurants, bars, etc. Easy to pass the time sightseeing and shopping.

One of my favorite places in Tokyo. Everytime I come here, I find some cool shop or goodie, it's just so vibrant and diverse. Probably the best place to find good deals on sneakers, too, since the area has a high density of shoe stores.
