    Second Hand Fashion in Shimokitazawa

    by cgutierrez Written Nov 6, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Shimokitazawa is an area frequented by the college-age crowd. By walking around the densely populated shopping area, you'll notice the crowd here is stylish, but in a manner totally different from the typical fashions you'll find in Shinjuku, Shinbuya, Ginza or Harajuku. Most of the young adults here buy their clothes from the second hand clothing stores found all around this district and some may even modify their findings to suit their style.

    Take a walk around and poke your head into a few of the second hand stores many are on the basement-level so keep a good eye out. Many stores will have their own specialties in the type of clothes they carry, but if you are open-minded you may be able to find something amazing. Observe the stylish people walking around the district to take some cues about how you can repurpose a second-hand buy into a fashion forward outfit.

    Upon exiting the Shimokitazawa station walk straight out veering to the right and you will find yourself at the entrance of the main shopping area.

    Shibamata - Old Downtown Inside Tokyo

    by cinfulmocha Written Aug 13, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tokyo is not just skyscrapers and noisy streets. Most travellers have missed the "***amachi" area, which means 'the old downtown'. @Shibamata, can best represents the "***amachi", is inside Katsushika ward. It was set as the background of famous drama "Otoko wa Tsurai yo" - or 'It's tough being a man', starring Kiyoshi Atsumi as Tora-san. This drama is very popular and favored by Japanese.
    The shops and streets in Shibamata have a traditional feel, represents the Edo-period atmosphere.
    When you visit Shibamata, please don't forget to try 'dango' - rice cake ball stuffed with red bean paste skewer.

    *Access to Shibamata*
    Keisei Shibamata Station - 3 minutes on the Kanamachi Line from Keisei Takasago station.
    Hokuso Shin-Shibamata - 2 minutes on the Hokuso Line from Keisei Takasago station.
