Our neighborhood:

Our neighborhood, Nakameguro is a quiet, effortlessly trendy locale in central Tokyo, just a skip from the neon madness of downtown (Shibuya). The bright lights of Shibuya, Roppongi and Shinjuku are clearly visible, from our balcony, but the neighbourhood itself is a serene, traditionally Japanese one. A great place to experience a real taste-of-Japan neighbourhood, with easy access to all of the adrenaline, creativity and energy of modern Tokyo.

Nakameguro has been on the rise for years as a very desirably trendy spot. Funky restaurants, bars, cafes and designer boutiques have sprung up all over, rubbing shoulders with the more traditional shops and eateries.

In cherry blossom season, the Meguro river comes alive with it's impossibly gorgeous banks of cherry trees, painting the water pink with their falling petals.

A few minutes walk takes you to one of two nearby stations, from where trains whisk you to Shibuya in under five minutes, and on to endless explorations in Tokyo. Or, hop on one of our bikes to find your own adventures!

About us:

We are a young Turkish/Canadian couple who work as teachers at Yokohama International School. This means we get to spend all our days playing with fantastic kids, and top it off with 14 weeks of holiday time a year... So we've got lots of time and ideas for travel!

We recently returned from a charitable two-week adventure around Cambodia, traveling by tuk-tuk (a Cambodian motorcycle rickshaw)... click on the link to see more:

Please get in touch if you're interested in exploring Tokyo from our beautiful little home base!
