Shimo-Kitazawa Restaurant Guide

Shimokitazawa is serviced by Odakyu and Keio Lines.Shops and restaurants crowd the area around the station. You could get lost in the many hidden pleasures available in this district.Buzzing with unique shops such as vintage fashion stores, second hand bookstores, and variety shops, the area has development its own unique atmosphere and culture. Amidst Tokyo's rapid redevelopment, Shimokitazawa is valuable for maintaining its "authentic" character.Another unique aspect of Shimokitazawa is that although there are police substations, there is no main police station. Instead, the businesses and residents of the shopping district are looking out for their own safety and order.The area is considered a Mecca for theater art. Well-established venues and theaters like The Suzunari and Ekimae Gekijo are considered to be the gateway to success for young theater actors and new theater companies.One such theater, Honda Gekijo, houses an exhibition space called "Handprints of Stars" in its underground parking garage. The exhibit shows stone lithographs of handprints and signatures of famous people, which were previously on exhibit at Aoyama Yours.
