Koenji is one of the hippest neighborhoods in Tokyo, known for its cool retro vibe. Once home to the city’s resident punk scene in the 1970s, Koenji has matured a little since then, with a creative underground aesthetic that bubbles gently with its hip youth culture. With a laid-back atmosphere, it’s the place to go for vintage shopping and local izakayas, and it’s also home to a thriving local live music scene, and numerous record stores to match. With art hotels and trendy cafes, Koenji offers an easy-going, left-of-field experience for an alternative side to Tokyo.
