by Ryutaro Seki for Johnny Strategy
Ryutaro has lived in Koenji for over 30 years. The Shinto priest and DJ has seen the neighborhood transform from quiet suburb to hip hotspot. His picks:
Before immersing yourself, fill up with some of the best Thai food you'll find in Tokyo at Sabai Thailand.
Warm up at Kosugiyu, one of Tokyo's last remaining public bath houses. They even have an art gallery!
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
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.
Want a tast of Koenji beer? Head to this microbrewery that's also a pub. They usually open in the afternoon. Twitter: @koenjiBEERkobo
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
Started by long-term Tokyo resident Jon Levin. Enjoy Koenji's take on the Bay Area diner.
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.
Enban is a one-of-a-kind record shop and music hall. Take note of their calendar as you may want to come back for performances: enbanschedule.blogspot.jp
