Nestled between Harajuku to the south and Shinjuku Gyoen garden to the north, Sendagaya is quietly one of Tokyo’s hippest neighbourhoods. The area has long had strong ties with fashion, architecture and other creative fields, thanks to a host of design studios and fashion showrooms being based here. It’s only in the past few years though that Sendagaya has emerged as an off-duty destination to rival bordering Harajuku, with a host of boutiques, restaurants and galleries popping up that are as cool as you’d expect from the style-fixated crowd that makes a living here.
Let us guide you to ten of the best spots Sendagaya has to offer, from botanics-filled hip café Tas Yard to one of Tokyo’s most audaciously futuristic concept shops, fashion jewellery brand Jam Home Made. Getting to Sendagaya is simple: it’s served by JR Sendagaya Station and Kita-Sando metro station, and is about a 14-minute walk from Harajuku’s Meiji Dori-Omotesando intersection.
