The other day Hiki-chan and I wondered around Sangenjaya. I live very close to Sangenjaya, but besides riding my bike there to meet with my Editors for a Japanese book I am Art Directing, or to pop into one of my favourite bakeries, I rarely wonder around or lunch there. Hiki-chan and I had lunch at Rain On The Roof, a cute cafe run by the same people as Mois cafe in Shimokitazawa. We wondered around the back streets nearby the cafe, taking pictures on our instagram app (addictive!). There were lots of cute details to shoot, including some kind of Australian bar? and a cute outdoor bar that looked like it could have been better placed in Okinawa! But what I enjoyed most was the Hong Kong style lane ways! I really felt as though I was living in Asia.

Sangenjaya has a really lovely vibe, is close to Shibuya, and is just one bus ride away to Shimokitazawa. Better still, there is a giant Seiyu there for your one stop home making needs! Pop on over on your mamachari and stay for an afternoon beer. I hear there is a bike rental shop under the station where you can rent mamacharis for ¥200 for the day! Waou!

  1. Hi エボニーさん
    I've known you since my friend in Australia told me about your blog :-)
    These pics remind me of memories with my old BF. It's very "natsukashii" cause I think the filter effect makes it stronger :-D
    Is the Okinawa bar new? Food looks nice!

  14. Hello Ebony,

    Your Sangenjaya photos made me smile. At the start of the year I was in Japan armed with your awesome Tokyo guide and had so much fun exploring all the places you suggested. Shimokita was definitely a favourite and we would often do the walk up to Sangenjaya to visit our friends there (I think you may actually know them - Scott and Nao who used to live in Sydney and I think are friends with your friend Nori Nori - small world!) Anyway, like most people who go there I fell in love with Japan, and your beautiful blog is so nice to relive the things that make it such a special place. If you would like to see what we got up to there are some photos over the past few months here...

    Thanks for keeping me inspired,

  20. Most Instagram pictures all start looking the same to me after a while - not so with yours! Lovely. I especially like the seafoam bike against the yellow wall, and the food shot. Thanks for posting ^^
