Walking around Takaido~Shimokitazawa~

Walking around Takaido~Shimokitazawa~

Hi! this is the manager Kato of First House Takaido Suginami!



It’s been so hot and humid lately that it’s hard to go outside even on holidays.

I’m not a fan of the heat, but I’d like to go out and refresh myself once in a while.



First House Takaido Suginami is a 5 minute walk from Fujimigaoka Station on the Keio Inokashira Line.


I’d like to show you some of the places I recommend near First House Takaido Suginami!




This time, I’ll be giving you information on Shimokitazawa, which is only a 15 minute direct train ride from Fujimigaoka station!


Shimokitazawa is known for its subculture, vintage clothing, theaters, and many other things.


Shimokitazawa is known for its subculture, vintage clothing, and theaters, but it is also popular for its unique cafes.


I would like to introduce you to a café where you can read a book at your leisure with corona measures in place.


The weather was sunny and the temperature was hot, but it was a weekday, so there were not that many people on the main street, and I could walk around easily and stress-free .


After arriving in Shimokitazawa, I walked southwest from the station for about five minutes until I reached a shopping mall with lush greenery and white stores!

It’s called Bonus Track, and it’s a new, stylish mall that just opened in April 2020. From vintage clothing, organic food stores, record stores to croquette shops, it’s a mall with a unique Shimokita lineup that’s exciting to walk around and look at!


We were tired of walking, so we took a break in the shade of a tree. I’m glad there are benches everywhere.


As we continued on, we found a cafe in the mall!


This is the first café I’d like to introduce.



“This cafe is known for “providing the best reading environment.


It is designed to provide the best environment for reading books, with comfortable chairs and a comfortable silence where you can concentrate on reading.


The atmosphere doesn’t make you feel like it’s time to leave, in fact, the store seems to welcome you to stay longer, lol!


It doesn’t matter how long you stay during business hours, some people even spend 11 hours! LOL!




Food includes curry, sandwiches, toast, etc., and snacks are also available.


Beer, cocktails, and whiskey are available, so you can enjoy drinking from noon.


It seems that you can even bring in some of your own food, which is nice of the store to fulfill your desire to read a book while eating your favorite cake or bread!




This is a cafe where you can relax in a calm environment until your heart’s content, if you’d like, please stop by!



Next, I’ll introduce you to the second cafe.

『Darwin Room』

The main items on display are old books, insects, and stuffed specimens, so if you’re interested in those kinds of things, your intellectual curiosity may be piqued.


The first floor is a cafe and store, and the second floor is a lab and office.


It seems that there are red-eyed tree frogs in the store, so reptile lovers won’t be able to resist!



The café seems to hold regular events, and the events are broadcast on the web, so you can reserve a spot in advance via Zoom.


If you’re interested, please check out the event details and try to attend.



Next, let’s take a look at this cafe!

『RBL Cafe』

The name “RBL Cafe” comes from the acronym for “Reference Book Library”.


The name comes from the acronym for “Reference Book Library”, which translates to “Reference Books”, and is mainly books that were used as materials for making quiz questions.

The books that were used as materials for making quiz questions are mainly arranged here.



There are also a lot of unusual dictionaries, illustrated books, unique texts, and technical books.

If you’re into that kind of thing, this is the cafe for you!



The cafe also has a rental space that can be used for various occasions such as talk shows, workshops, and photo shoots.



And finally, I dropped by this cafe!


『Waffle café ORANGE』


It’s a small, stylish café with a white and wooden base, and there are several terrace seats.


It was a beautiful day, so it was great to spend some time on the terrace looking out at the street!


The large trees provided shade and comfort, and my matcha latte was delicious!


The waffles seem to be popular for their crispy and light texture!


If you feel like eating a waffle while taking a leisurely stroll in Shimokitazawa, please go there.


All of the cafes I’ve introduced here are unique and charming!


If there is a cafe you are interested in, please come and visit it!


If there is a café you like, please visit it! Also, due to the emergency declaration, some cafes have changed their opening hours and are not serving alcohol or drinks, so please check the website of each store.




【extra edition】


I had curry for lunch!


Speaking of Shimokita, yes! It’s curry, right? LOL!


It’s so famous for its curry that they hold a curry festival once a year!



This time, I went to E-itou Curry, a curry restaurant with a great reputation and a delicious menu.

『E-itou Curry』


After a five-minute walk from the station, you will see a red sign that looks like a long-established restaurant.


The menu looks stylish and tasty enough to whet your appetite.


I’m starving after all the walking, so I go in and place my order right away!



The curry here is made with Hokkaido ingredients.


There are three types of roux to choose from, and you can even change the spiciness for free.


The roux type is Pakistani-style anhydrous curry.


The original Ito-san’s curry.


Spicy Curry



I chose the Sapporo Spice Curry (spicy curry). The garnish was grilled broccoli, carrots, and potatoes, so you can get all the nutrition you need.


It also came with a large chicken wing, which was a hearty meal!



Inside the restaurant, you can enjoy the curry with relaxing background music.


It was delicious, so I’d like to go back again.



How was this introduction of a relaxing cafe in Shimokitazawa?


I’m sure there are many people who tend to stay indoors during the Corona disaster, but


In addition, the house is located in the vicinity of the Fujimigaoka station on the Keio Inokashira line, which has a number of attractive stations including Shimokitazawa, Kichijoji, and Shibuya.

There’s a river flowing around the nearest station to the house, and the morning glories and Ducklings swimming in the river were very relaxing.


First House Takaido Suginami is currently accepting applications for residents.


If you’re looking for a house in a great location where you can easily go to Shimokitazawa, this is the house for you!



There’s also a working room, so you can work at home in a large shared space!


If the words “share house,” “remote work,” “great location,” and “Keio Inokashira Line” are of interest to you, be sure to stop by and take a look at First House Takaido Suginami!
