Tokyo Guide: Nakameguro and Daikanyama

We began our day in Nakameguro, where we stumbled across a quaint pottery shop. The shop is unmarked, but it’s a must. The owner was delightful- even giving us red house slippers while we shopped. The store is just past JTB tours when coming from the Naka-Meguro subway station. It will be on your left-hand side, across from a florist.

We then headed to J’Antiques. This place reeked of pretentious hipster. I was followed into every room by the staff. Chalk it up to white privilege back home, but it was not something I was accustomed to. We left almost immediately.

Brick and Mortar was probably one of our favorite shops in Nakameguro. Even if you don’t buy anything, it is fun to peruse the beautiful home goods sold there.

We eventually headed towards Daikanyama, which blends seamlessly with Nakameguro. Cocca is a must for any fabric lover.

We initially compiled a lengthy list of shops to visit in these two districts. However, I recommend narrowing it down to just a few. Then spend the rest of your time exploring! You can’t go wrong with either of these neighborhoods.
