Nestled within Meguro District, Nakameguro makes its own name. Only two stops from the incessant activity of Shibuya, Nakameguro exudes a laid-back attitude of the kind where shoppers browse without the pressure to buy and tables linger without the pressure to pay the bill. Leaf through art books suited for the coffee table or buy a vintage suit from a man in a van—Nakameguro’s understatedly European atmosphere enhances this sliver along the Meguro River.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
