Daikanyama Neighborhood, Daikanyama

Metro: Daikanyama's insider take:

The celebrated Japanese architect Fumihiko Maki has been adding to his Hillside Terrace development here for more than three decades. Today, this smart residential neighborhood is also filling up with fashion boutiques and cafés. Residents include the Danish Embassy and Yamada Heiando, suppliers of lacquerware to the Japanese imperial family. Be sure to explore the backstreets to find interesting stores like Tsumori Chisato, A.P.C., Bonjour Records, United Bamboo, Cocca, and the bag shop B Jirushi Yoshida. For the ultimate only-in-Tokyo souvenir, there's Gaiac 10, a Le Labo fragrance exclusive to Japan.—Updated by Rebecca Willa Davis
