Daikanyama / Nakameguro / Ebisu:
Writer and designer Craig Mod has spent over a decade in Tokyo. He shares with us some of his favorite spots.
Some of the best coffee in Tokyo. Roast their own beans. Amazing selection. Great omelet sandwiches. Excellent cake.
One of the rare open-before-8am breakfast spots in the city. Dinner is less impressive but their morning tortilla / egg / salsa concoction is quite spectacular
Best sandwiches in Tokyo. Huge. Hearty. Spectacular, thick, slices of bread. Also great coffee and Hitachino craft beer.
Massively long bar counter. Endless whiskeys. Walls covered in records. Best stereo / sound setup in the city. Just remember: keep your voice low.
As a non-meat eater I relish the often rare, well-done veggie friendly spots. If you’re a man, however, be forewarned: You will be lunching with girls
Secret park perched above Nakameguro. The real secret is the tiny street just along side — stroll down until you hit 246; the cliffside mansions are a treat.
Denny’s — 24 Hour People Watching Spot — Work late. Order little. Watch the night folks do whatever it is night folks do
Sturdy, well made, simple clothes, inspired by mountaineering and WWI. The Army Gym is Nigel Cabourn’s only flagship international outpost.
Asakura House. A supposedly beautifully preserved home / museum in Daikanyama. Embarrassingly, despite living five minutes walk away, I’ve yet to visit.
