The Live not Stay

Yoyogi-Uehara  Setagaya-daita Tokyo  Japan

You have traveled to Tokyo many times and want to stay in a different place next time. How about “experience living” ? Live a daily life in a residential area of Tokyo and go sightseeing from there. The place is Yoyogi-Uehara, one of the most popular residential areas in Tokyo. And the access to the center is also good. I would like to introduce a shops and restaurants that people who live here love.


<Former Marquis Maeda Western Style House>
Komaba Koen  Archtecture Museum

Historical architecture in a quiet residential area. It was said to be the best in the Orient when built in 1929. The Western-style building, which was influenced by British architecture in the 16th century, has a design that integrates a garden and a building. In the past, it is expected that a table was placed in the garden to entertain the guests. Now it’s a place of relaxation in the neighborhood. Let’s visit the nearby “The Maeda Japanese Style House” and “The Japan Folk Crafts Museum” together.

The first floor is a cultural center, a bookstore, and a halal market, and second floor is a magnificent dome the place of worship and cafe. This is a Turkish cultural center.

Yoyogi-Uehara  Flower Shop

When did th shop open? More than 10 years ago. Mugihana started out as a small shop in a narrow alley and opened a new shop a few years ago. Many people visit the shop once a week to see the beautiful flowers needed for the lives of the residents of Yoyogi-Uehara. Guests from abroad will buy lovely flowers and decorate them in your room.

Yoyogi-Uehara  Cakes Shop

Japanese sweets are beautiful and delicious, not too sweet. The recommended famouse Asterisque cakes are mousse cakes, a wide variety of gems lined up in the showcase. The surprising taste will be liked by foreigners as well.

Yoyogi-Uehara  Boulangerie Bakery Cafe

Many people come to the store from 8:00 in the morning near Yoyogi-Uehara Station. The owner was a bakery chef at Hotel de Crillon in front of Place de la Concorde in Paris. This is a delicious bakery that will satisfy Europeans. Bread with recipes using Japanese ingredients is also recommended.

Yoyogi-Uehara  Sushi Restaurant

10 minutes walk from Yoyogi-Uehara station. It is located on the steepest slope of a residential area, where you wonder if it exists. This is a nice sushi restaurant that only foodies know. There is no menu, only course meals. Enjoy eating while watching the beautiful work of the wonderful owner. Good restaurant, good price, bat location, but 100% satisfied. Be sure to make a reservation. 

Yoyogi-Uehara  Italian Restaurant

Lunch is perfect here when you meet someone you want to talk to for two hours. Starting with the beautiful vegetable Bagna cauda, al dente pasta and tender meat. Delicious food makes everyone happy. Absolutely women’s favorite restaurant.

<La Facon Koga>
Yoyogi-Uehara French Restaurant

The best French restaurant in Yoyogi-Uehara, people living in this area definitely think so. Chef Koga opened a restaurant in this town 20 years ago and moved here in 2013. Orthodox French cuisine, which you will never get tired of visiting many times, also has sophistication. You can see the cooking when you sit at the counter. Anyway, meat dishes are the best.

<Yuen Bettei Daita>
Setagaya-Daita  Japanese Hotel

A hot spring inn that opened in 2020 on the hill of Daita, 3 stations by train from Yoyogi-Uehara Station. The hot springs in the open-air bath are brought from the Hakone hot spring area, and you can also eat special Japanese food. Stay like a resident in Japanese architecture in the former countryside.
