Quietly residing just beyond the city’s inner circle, Meguro District attracts commuters, families, and artists who appreciate subtle charms over sonorous environs. Tokyoites tend to visit Meguro District’s most famous local destinations, the hip enclave of Nakameguro and the canal along the Meguro River. Despite its far-away residential feel, Meguro District never seems out of touch. Organic cafes, famous izakayas, repurposed vintage shops, and musty must-see bookstores generate enough buzz to sustain this understatedly cool neighborhood.See places to stay Save this neighbourhood
