Where Japanese punk started – Koenji is one of Tokyo’s most laid back districts. Many of the counter-culture attitudes from the 70s can still be found.
It’s a must visit place for live punk & rock shows, vintage shopping, and grungy but loveable bars. You can find all of these in my map.
There’s also some very delicious food spots on my list, because you can’t soak up all the vintage allure of these streets without stopping to fill your belly.
