For the Tea Lovers:
A suburb to the west of Tokyo, heavily sought after to live in.
Home to a number of Record shops, vintage stores, and Music houses, “Shimo-kita” is a hub of young activity.
Tsukimasa: See Above*
Bear Pond Coffee: A place that has acquired considerable fame in recent times for good reason.
This is not the most popular place outside of Tokyo. A small suburb city to the west, where most tourists travel out to see the famous Jindaiji temple. Which in my opinion has one of the most lovely botanical gardens to boast about as well.
TonTon: The best Shochu, Sake bar I have even been to. Hands down.
