In Nakameguro, vintage fashion rules over high-end. The government cleaned the area up, prompting several young entrepreneurs to move into the neighborhood because of its low rent and prime location. It's been on the rise since the mid-'90s, and artists, designers, and musicians have begun to call it home recently. The neighborhood is full of boutiques and restaurants along the Meguro river, and the backstreets consist of vintage shops, cafes, and bars that specialize in jazz and R&B music. The emerging neighborhood is like its own little world, and it's drawn its fair share of foreigners, as it's become an international attraction for fashion, music and art.
