Not packed in a bus. Not herded with a group. Self guided walk is the SAFEST way to sightsee!

Nakameguro and Daikanyama Walking Tour (Self Guided), Tokyo

Tokyo is full on fun, frenzy and excitement, a neon-lit crowded metropolis packed to the rafters with shopping malls, precincts and arcades. So where do you go in the city if you want a bit of quiet time, a place to chill out and relax?

The answer is both the Daikanyama district and the Nakameguro district, two very attractive neighborhoods. Well-heeled Daikanyama oozes class and sophistication and is where many celebrities and trendy young thirty somethings have their homes. This high-class area is dotted with beautiful and swanky homes and several embassies. Stroll along its winding streets and you will also discover that it's a hip neighborhood with unique clothing boutiques, international restaurants and a thriving café culture.

Nakameguro is a beautiful part of the city, situated on the banks of the Meguro River. It is also one of the most fashionable areas in Tokyo with its trendy cafés, galleries and boutiques. Not only are many visitors seduced by its stylish and happening vibe and the outstanding picturesque beauty, but also by the laidback atmosphere. And, if you are here in the spring, wander through the back streets for sakuru watching, which is the popular practice of admiring the blooming cherry blossoms.
