Nakameguro is worth a gander even when its cherry blossoms aren't in bloom. Boutiques, cafes, and small restaurants flank each side of the tree-lined river and makes for a lovely walkabout. There are also a number of hole in the wall bars that reek of cool here, and we would end up revisiting this area later on in our trip.
Walking distance away is Daikanyama, a slightly more upscale area with a mishmash of modern architecture and older residential buildings. Unfortunately, by the time we had waited out the surprise downpour (in a bustling cafe, where everyone seemed to be taking shelter from the rain), it had gotten very dark.
|Upscale dog grooming|
|Here they were screening Logorama, and had lots of other type-nerd goods on display|
|A slice of heaven|
|The cutest USB keys. I had purchased the "Nekon D7000" version at another store earlier that day|
|On the wish list! How adorable are these guys?|
Tsutaya Books was particularly tempting, but it was getting late and it looked like the kind of place we could get lost in for hours. Next time!
Next, 1/2 of day three: Asakusa and Kappabashi (Kitchen Town, aka plastic display food galore)!
