If Nakameguro is the Hampstead of Tokyo, then Shimokitazawa is the Shoreditch of Tokyo. If you’re not familiar with these areas of London (and Tokyo, respectively), then read my blog post about Nakameguro and I’ll try to describe Shimokitazawa: it’s trendy, full of vintage shops and cafes, lots of young and fashion conscious people, it has a laid back atmosphere and is really great to hang around in. I think, if I lived in Tokyo, I would probably try to get a flat near this area.
There’s a cute little train station.
The area has mainly a mix of cafes and restaurants, clothes shops and a few other essentials. Like a tattoo parlour…
Slightly creepy Halloween dolls. In fact, very creepy.
I had the ladies combo for lunch!
All photos taken by me with my LC-A+ and LC-Wide on 35mm film.

That one pic below Yellow Pop has a “(What’s the Story) Morning Glory? feel.
Ah yes! I see where you’re coming from! Need a little time to wake up wake up…
Love the colors! What film did you use? Am pleasantly surprised that these were from a Lomo camera.
Thank you! I used Kodak Portra 400 and Kodak Ektar 100. The LC-A+ is a really good camera actually. Not really a toy camera like some of their other cameras…
Thanks – I’ll check it out!
