Birthplace of Tokyo's punk scene, and a healthy obsession for anything musically related. A unique fashion sense and a don't-give-a-fuck attitude away from the conformities of daily Japanese life.

Tokyo doesn't really have a ghetto in the real sense of the word. There are some rundown areas in Koenji, though. Nothing too shabby, but places with character, as I like to refer to them. Perhaps, like me, you imagine/imagined Tokyo to be high tech with swanky boutiques and flashing neon everywhere. Places like Koenji, Nakano, and Shimokitazawa go against the grain to present the real Tokyo.
