Also referred to as Cat Alley but without the cats, this neighborhood has a quaint atmosphere and bohemian culture that is different than the modern vibe you come to expect for Tokyo. There are lots of small boutique stores, a few brand name stores, and...More

I came by to see what is available but the place was closed down, despite it being during the opening hours as they appear on the official website. Very disappointing.
