    Asian

    Before immersing yourself, fill up with some of the best Thai food you'll find in Tokyo at Sabai Thailand.

  • 小杉湯

    Bath House

    Warm up at Kosugiyu, one of Tokyo's last remaining public bath houses. They even have an art gallery! Twitter: @kosugiyu

  • 高円寺米穀店

    Japanese

    At Kinmai you'll find 20 - 25 varieties of rice from all over Japan. They even polish rice right there on the spot. Twitter: @kinmaihonpoo

  • 椿

    Sake Bar

    If you're craving Japanese food head to Tsubaki where you'll find some of the best foods from the Yamagata prefecture. We recommend the soba and sake.

  • Koenji Bakushu Kobo (高円寺麦酒工房)

    Brewery

    Want a tast of Koenji beer? Head to this microbrewery that's also a pub. They usually open in the afternoon. Twitter: @koenjiBEERkobo

  • アムレテロン

    Bookstore

    Amleteron is an adorable shop with an emphasis on books and stationary. You'll also find a selection of pottery, or whatever else the owner is into at that time

    Burgers

    Started by long-term Tokyo resident Jon Levin. Enjoy Koenji's take on the Bay Area diner. https://www.facebook.com/fatzsburger

  • 古本酒場コクテイル

    Bar

    Rest your mind and legs at Koenji Cocktail, a used bookstore and bar. Built within an old Machiya, it's filled not only with books and booze but charm too.

  • 円盤
