Shimokitazawa, affectionately known as “Shimokita” by Tokyoites is a small, but very popular town only 5 minutes from Shibuya, and a few more minutes to Shinjuku by train.
Like Harajuku, Shimokitazawa is known for it’s fashion and youth culture, though if Harajuku represents the sometimes bizarre fashion of the Japanese High School girl, Shimokita represents her big brother or sister, who have real tattoos, drink hard liquor and sleep in their leather jackets.
Also known as “Theatre Town” due to it’s many live music venues and small theatres, Shimokitazawa is one of the best places to check out some of those zany Japanese bands you have heard about, but don’t know where to find.
With it’s small unorganized roads not quite wide enough for cars in many areas, it is the perfect place for walking. The abundance of unique and second-hand stores, cool cafes, bars, old style Japanese pubs and eateries in a village type atmosphere is a refreshing change from the densely crowded areas of Tokyo, only a few minutes train ride away.
Prices are generally cheaper than in busier parts of the city in Shimokitazawa which is another reason this area should be on the must visit list. Many university sudents live and socialize in the area, and the retailers are aware that prices have to be low to get the thrifty punters entering their doors.
Shimokitazawa is situated on the Odakyu and Inokashira train lines. Only one stop on the Inokashira line express train = only 5 minutes to Shibuya. Shinjuku is about 7 minutes away by express train on the Odakyu line. Shimokita is very close to the densely populated parts of the city and it is possible to ride to Shibuya and Shinjuku on bicycle in less than 30 minutes.
