Experience Location:

Meguro: The inner south area of Meguro has a quaint local community that’s central enough, but not quite in the thick of chaotic city life. Meguro Station is conveniently located between Shibuya and Shinagawa on the JR Yamanote Line and is also intersected by the subway, making for a considerable transit hub to well-connect this residential area. Surrounded by a cluster of restaurants and bars which trickle down through Meguro Dori Street, cherry blossoms line the canal along Meguro River, a popular spot for hanami season in spring. Follow the river to the west and you’ll end up at the trendy bars and hipster cafes of Nakameguro, where the ward stretches as far as Yutenji and Tokyo’s little Europe in Jiyugaoka. Meguro is home to 500 Buddha statues in Daienji Temple, as well as the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography and the Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum, alongside the much more unusual Meguro Parasitological Museum.

Meeting Time and Meeting Location:

All classes are held in a private residence. It’s a 5-minute walk from Fudomae Station (via the Metro Mita Line or Nanboku Line) and a 10-minute walk from Meguro Station (JR Yamanote Line). The exact location and address of the residence will be given upon the confirmation of your attendance.

Additional Information:

  • Please be reminded to come to the class on time
  • As the house is not childproof, toddlers under the age of 4 are not allowed
