“Youthful fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2012

This area is a good place to go if you want to avoid the crazy busy areas of Shibuya, Roppongi and the like. A popular place with the Tokyo university crowd, it has bars, live houses, and is quite a bit more laid back.

“Likes and dislikes, this place is not for me.”

Crowded, filthy, only cheap places for youngsters. Beware after dark.

“Interesting neighborhood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2012

If you live in Tokyo or are here for a long trip, make sure to spend a long afternoon in Shimo Kitazawa. Great for taking a long walk exploring little shops and restaurants. A visit here will likely change your perception of modern Tokyo for the better.

“lotsa Cool Bars & Shops.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2011

Poking your nose into all the "One Off Shops" in this area is full of surprises. Many expats call it home because there is always something new to find.
