Imagine yourself lost in the middle of a endless neighborhood, with hundreds of small road, path and alleys with no apparent order. Welcome to Kitazawa. Still if you know where to look there are always places worth to be visited.
Keeping the track of where you are might be a challenge once you start wandering around Setagaya. The endless streets filled with all kinds of neighborhoods, parks, temples and stores are constantly changed. Is not rare to find yourself lost in the middle of this labyrinth, and maybe just because of that is so fun
Hidden in plain sight and surrounded by apartment buildings and small houses, Setagaya Kannon is a beautiful spot for making a pause, take a walk around its gardens and try to feel the energy emanating from this place
Todoroki is another example of how bast Setagaya can be. Very close to the river Tama this little station is an excellent starting point for a long walk along the river.
Gotokuji is a beautiful residential neighborhood located within Setagaya ward. Famous for holding one of the many Maneki Neko (lucky cat) temples, is a great place to explore. There are lots of great restaurants, temples and stores around that are worth the visit.
