  • Cafe Facon

    1

    Café

    Some of the best coffee in Tokyo. Roast their own beans. Amazing selection. Great omelet sandwiches. Excellent cake.

  • IVY PLACE

    2

    Café

    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

  • King George

    3

    Sandwiches

    Best sandwiches in Tokyo. Huge. Hearty. Spectacular, thick, slices of bread. Also great coffee and Hitachino craft beer.

  • Bar Martha

    4

    Bar

    Massively long bar counter. Endless whiskeys. Walls covered in records. Best stereo / sound setup in the city. Just remember: keep your voice low.

  • Annon Cook (アンノンクック)

    5

    Café

    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

  • Saigoyama Park (西郷山公園)

    6

    Park

    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 (デニーズ 南平台店)

    7

    Breakfast

    Denny’s — 24 Hour People Watching Spot — Work late. Order little. Watch the night folks do whatever it is night folks do

  • THE ARMY GYM

    8

    Men's Store

    Sturdy, well made, simple clothes, inspired by mountaineering and WWI. The Army Gym is Nigel Cabourn’s only flagship international outpost.

  • 旧朝倉家住宅

    9

    Garden

    Asakura House. A supposedly beautifully preserved home / museum in Daikanyama. Embarrassingly, despite living five minutes walk away, I’ve yet to visit.
