We visited on a wet morning last week. The house is located on a cliff and is now surrounded by boutiques and quite a fancy neighbourhood. The house is mostly empty, with mostly tatami flooring (shoes to be left at the entrance) and some inbuilt...More

This large estate remains untouched by the 1923 earthquake and various Tokyo fires. It has also been lovingly cared for. It is a true treasure, especially considering its urban location. Peaceful and enriching, it is a must see. When I visited, there were only 4...More

Traditional but ‘modern’ Japanese house built in 1919. Enormous house for a family, nested in a peaceful garden. The property is not particularly beautiful, but it gives an interesting glimpse of life for an upper-class Japanese family in early 20th century.

Amazing property, in the middle of busy Tokyo. Like a jewel It is unbelievable that someone can keep an estate like that in the middle of Tokyo. Up-keep must be very expensive. Less then $1 entry to the place. Only 100 yen.

Great place for a few quiet moments savouring a step back into history. Free for o.a.p. s and even at 100¥ it's cheap. Beautiful furniture inside and cosy garden to walk through. Beautiful cherry trees, so go there in spring for sakura hanami.

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.
