Artsy cool along the river

With hip boutiques, galleries and cool coffee stands, this local neighborhood near Shibuya has held onto its indie charm, despite encroaching developments. The cherry-tree-lined river brings crowds of revelers in spring, but it's a must in all seasons.

  • Rent an electric-powered bicycle to get around the area and the steep hills up to Daikanyama
  • The area is famous for hipster roasters and brewers, including Onibus Coffee, Sidewalk Stand and Artless Craft Tea & Coffee
