Nicknamed the “Brooklyn of Tokyo”, Daikanyama is a sophisticated neighborhood that’s surrounded by Shibuya, Nakameguro and Ebisu.

It’s become a popular weekend destination for locals due to its reputation as a fashionable town, with a lot of stylish shops that range from high-end boutiques to vintage stores.

Daikanyama is also home to the cutting-edge T-Site (home to Tsutaya Books) and plenty of cafes serving in-house roasted coffee.

So if you’re looking to escape the hustle and bustle of Shibuya, why not make the 15-minute walk to this leafy enclave to brunch, shop or just be seen.

    Shokudo Grigio

    Shokudo Grigio

    Shokudo Grigio

    Translating as “Grey Cafeteria” (in a mixture of Italian and Japanese), Shokudo Grigio is an attractive bistro that does an excellent curry lunch.

    The name was selected as the owners didn’t want to define their style or cuisine as “black or white”, opting for the more elusive reference to grey.

    Good food, friendly staff and affordable prices are the hallmarks of Shokudo Grigio.

    If you’re here for lunch, order the Grilled Chicken Curry and Salad, with a fried egg on top just 100 yen extra.
