Just south of Shibuya is the little residential enclave of Hiroo in Tokyo. This town has a nice atmosphere, upscale residences, and lots of cool little neighboorhoods and places to check out.
One such place is Caffe Appassionatto – tucked away on a 3-way corner just south of Gaien Nishi-Dori Ave, and just a block east from Hiro-o Station. To get here, take the Hibiya Line to Hiro-o Station, and head east down the street across from the station, which makes a dog-leg left. Just at the corner, you’ll stumble onto Caffe Appassionatto. As a footnote, you can take this street a few block north to Roppongi.
The shop has an open-air front, tables right next to the sidewalk, and delightful nighttime lighting. There’s loads to do in the area at night – just wander around.
Just down the street further east is the spectacular Iris Park – and on its east side the Tokyo Metropolitan Central Library – also both worth a look if you have time.
Hiroo Walking Street
Also of interest just a few blocks back the other way (west) is the charming little Hiroo Walking Street – a nice shop-lined street that is definitely worth a stroll.
If you’re in the area, stop in to Hiroo and Caffe Appassionatto. You won’t be disappointed.
