You can't escape the real beauty of Tokyo - concrete, concrete, concrete.
Monday, 14 June 2010
In a huge city like Tokyo, it's always nice to visit a district that keeps it real with independant traders. Shimokitazawa is one such place. Of course it's always going to be hard to wander around without Mcdonalds/Starbucks/KFC rammed in your face, but this place tries hard to honour the Liitle Man. Similar to Koenji, with a younger Kichijoji/Shibuya crowd.
Shimokitazawa is planned for major reconstruction and demolition as a highway is built through it, much to the protest of residents and shoppers.
