Shimokitazawa

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.shimokitazawa, tokyo shimokitazawa, tokyo shimokitazawa, tokyo shimokitazawa, tokyo shimokitazawa, tokyo shimokitazawa, tokyo

The area has mainly a mix of cafes and restaurants, clothes shops and a few other essentials. Like a tattoo parlour…

    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…
