Explore the youthful and hip district of Shimokitazawa in Tokyo and learn why all the kids love this vibrant place filled with art, music, entertainment, and culture. This fun and interesting half day tour will be done by a Japanese local who knows all about the ins and outs of Shimokitazawa. Navigate through narrow streets and alleyways and discover some of this district's best kept secrets, from quaint coffee shops and music stores to cool boutique shops owned by independent artists. A little after lunch, the tour begins at Tollywood, the lone cinema in the area, where you can watch all kinds of movies, including those by up-and-coming Japanese directors and foreign animation films. Go record shopping at Flash Disk Ranch and take some artsy photos at The Suzunari, a small independent playhouse. After a quick stop at the Honda Theater, relax with a cup of coffee or tea inclusive in the tour. Then finally, you can go shopping for knick knacks and souvenirs at either Shimokita Garage Department, an artist's complex built in a car garage, or at Antique Life Jin, a charming antique shop.
