Where you'll be

Shimokitazawa is near Shibuya and Shinjuku, and is a very popular part of town for young people. The cityscape is complex and attractive, so it often features in movies and novels. The tea house I will introduce you to appears in a novel 'Moshimoshi Shimokitazawa' by a best-selling Japanese author 'Yoshimoto Banana'.
