About
Cafe Kitsune is a hipper-than-hip cafe with a clean modern Japanese aesthetic. The cafe is surrounded by a garden and also features clothing from French fashion house Maison Kitsune. The coffee here is excellent, as are the French sandwiches. There always tends to be a line here, but it's worth it. Try the kitsune orange - a cappuccino with a drop of Cointreau. The baristas here were trained by Mister Kunitomo Eiichi, founder of the esteemed Omotesando Koffee.

About
Quite possibly the coolest store we've ever seen. Head downstairs from the Goyard store for the most amazing men's clothing shop - the store opens into a huge underground space with vaulted ceilings and a chandelier.

Upstairs from the Goyard store, you'll find the women's store. Super cool Japanese and international brands galore. The music playing is also bleeding edge hip. This is where we first heard Thievery Corporation's fantastic covers some 9 years ago.

Note: There's also a sister store in Daikanyama.

About
There was much despair in the air when the bundle of food stalls, shacks, caravans and shops known as 246 Common closed down in May 2014, so much so that a new permanent outpost called Commune 2nd. Then, in 2019, the space was reborn again as just "Commune."

Here, you'll find local creatives hanging out in an area with food stalls and restaurants including a place selling fancy potato fries, a fish shack called Fish Coop, vegan food stand Cori, and Dote Cafe, a stall selling vegan dishes with a Hawaiian bent. More than just an outdoor food market, Commune 246 is also a new kind of community space that locals use as an office, gig venue, or hangout.

You can find a seat under one of the plastic geodesic domes or inside the huge festival tent area if the weather’s inclement. Take note that many of the food stalls start shutting down mid-evening if they feel like it. There's also a retrofitted RV called "Caravan Tokyo" that you can rent on AirBnB for a few nights .

Note that hours may vary by stall.

About
Afuri is known for their yuzu shio and shoyu ramens. The broth is light and refreshing, while the yuzu base imparts a unique citrus flavor. The cha shu here is also excellent.

The style of ramen here is called assari (light, non-fatty). Unlike most ramens you'll find in the US, this is one that you'll feel good eating regularly.

Tip: While most of the ramens here are done with a chicken broth base, they also have a vegan ramen option.

About
Dedicated to the late 19th-century emperor who opened Japan to the West, Tokyo's most famous Shinto shrine is wonderfully serene and austere. It's not colorful or flashy like other Asian places of worship, and is less of a tourist trap than Senso-ji, the big Buddhist temple across town in Asakusa. The 40-foot-high (12-meter) torii gate at the entrance to the 200-acre park is made of 1,500-year-old cypress, and there's a second one like it closer to the shrine itself.

Stop at the cleansing station where you can dip into a communal water tank and purify your hands and mouth before offering up a prayer. You can write wishes on little pieces of paper and tie them onto the prayer wall, or do as the locals do — toss some yen into the offering box (it's near the enormous taiko drum), bow your head twice, clap twice, and bow once more.

Admission to the shrine is free. Admission to the inner garden is 500 yen.

About
On Sundays, visiting Harajuku is a must - it's the day of the week when different sub-cultures come here and express themselves through all kinds of interesting dress (Lolita goth punk is a popular theme). Just outside the entrance of Yoyogi Park, there's usually a group of Elvis impersonators hanging around and dancing. Definitely a sight to see.

But, there's also more to it than that:

"Just steps away from Yoyogi station is one eco-conscious musician’s idea of an urban oasis. Part eco-park, part shopping arcade, part lifestyle hub, Yoyogi Village is filled with shops, cafes and restaurants, all operated with thoughtful simplicity. Go there for a break from the frenzy that is Tokyo, to be inspired by the next generation of Japanese creatives, but also to get fed really really well.

When visiting, have a pastry from pour-kur, the tiny on-site bakery, known for its house-made yeast. With your pastry in hand, explore the complex via the elevated wooden walkways." - Betty Liao's Journy

Shibuya 109 has been the fashion mecca in Tokyo for the last 30 years and a destination for teens in search of the latest trends. Take a walk-through to check out the crazy Japanese fashions and accessories. If you're here to buy clothes or shoes though, keep in mind that sizing is extremely limited (shoes, for instance, come in just XS, S, M, L sizes - an M is about a 6.5-7 US, L is about a 7.5-8).

Also check out the men's shop across the street.

About
Satei Hato is lovingly detailed by James Freemen, founder of the famous Blue Bottle Coffee in their first book, and for very good reason.

A visit here is a trip back in time. Enjoy the aged coffee while listening to classical music on the stereo and watching your barista lovingly prepare your drink (many pour-overs take 20 minutes to prepare, but are worth the wait). Enjoy the civilized serenity of Satei Hato while in this part of Tokyo.

Satei Hateo will be closed on 1/1 and open until 5PM on 12/31. They'll also close around 9PM on 1/2 and 1/3.

About
For a more authentically Japanese watering hole, come to Drunkard's Alley, which lies down an innocuous passage a stone’s throw from Shibuya Crossing that at first glance seems to go nowhere. In reality, the small pathway serves as a portal to another realm: a pristine lantern-lined example of pre-war Tokyo. At it’s terminus it branches into two parallel alleys, maybe two meters wide each, packed with tiny eateries, bars, and izakaya.

About
The hotel: Set in top 6 floors of a sleek, modern high-rise, this luxury hotel is an 8-minute walk from the bustling Tokyo Station, and 3 km from the landmark Tsukiji Market

With floor-to-ceiling windows and sweeping city views, the elegant rooms, decorated in stone, wood and paper screens, feature free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, deep soaking tubs and minibars. Suites add living rooms and wine cellars

The spa: Drawing on traditional natural remedies and the principles of balancing mind and body, Aman Spa offers an integrated approach to wellbeing. Several Spa treatment rooms are complemented by large Japanese-style hot baths and steam rooms, a 30-metre heated pool with city views, a fitness centre equipped with the latest cardiovascular and weight training machinery, as well as a dedicated yoga and Pilates studio.

Their minute seasonal journey starts off with a foot bath comprised of hot water, sake koji paste, and Japanese sea salt followed by a body wrap made of Japanese rice bran, clay, yuzu (a citrus fruit packed with skin-brightening vitamin C), ginger, and pine essential oils. You can choose a 90 minute or 60 minute massage with this option. At 46,000 yen, it's certainly pricey, but you'd be hard-pressed to find a spa treatment this luxurious anywhere but here.
