A Family-Friendly Living Environment Surrounded by Nature: Meguro Area
Meguro area is located in the southwestern part of Tokyo’s 23 wards. Well known for its luxurious residences, this well-heeled district is also popular for its quiet, comfortable and family-friendly milieu.
From Meguro Station, commuters can ride JR Yamanote Line, Tokyo Metro Namboku Line, Tokyu Meguro Line and Toei Mita Line. Shinagawa Station is just 7 minutes away and Tokyo Station a mere 20, affording superb convenience for commuting to work or school.
If you set out on foot from the west exit of Meguro Station and head toward Yamate-Dori, you will soon find yourself on the famous Gonnosuke Hill. This sloping hill plays host to Gonnosukezaka Shotengai, a 3km long shopping street boasting some 250 stores. Perhaps because of the office buildings that encircle it, about 80% of these shops are restaurants. Standing check by jowl on both sides of the street, these eateries serve a dizzying assortment of culinary genres, ranging in age from trendy new shops popular with younger diners to long-serving establishments that have been making local people smile for decades. Along the banks of the Meguro River you’ll find popular spots lined with cherry trees, perfect for enjoying the changing seasons.
A 15-minute stroll from Meguro Station takes you to Interior Street, informally so named because of the many interior-goods shops to be found here. These stores handle everything from vintage products to hidden gems, so your new favorite interior item may be waiting for you here.
The abundant natural beauty and smorgasbord of culinary options in this quarter make Meguro a district where you can expect a richly varied and exciting urban life, whether you’re with your family or living alone.
