Following last week’s post about Nakameguro and whether it’s a hip neighborhood or not, I feel like I need to post a follow-up, since I think a lot of people have gotten the wrong impression regarding my feelings on the area. I love Nakameguro, it’s an area I like to go to and spend time in, and I’d say it’s one of the nicest neighborhoods in Tokyo. Marxy’s original post was about whether it’s a super-hip area or not, which is how western media likes to position it.
Some people pointed to the segment I did for TOKYO EYE. When they approached me about doing it, they asked me what neighborhoods I would be interested in presenting, and Nakameguro was at the top of my list, and I’m glad we were able to feature it.
