5 Things Nikki Chasin Thinks You Absolutely Have to See in Tokyo

Get Outta Town BY carly pifer 11/22/2013

Nikki Chasin’s thoughts after returning from a totally revelatory trip to Tokyo? “Lost in Translation is the most accurate movie I’ve ever seen,” says the diminutive designer—who, in case you were wondering, felt huge (physically) in Japan. She also came back to New York inpired by the vintage clothing she discovered and by the vibe of the city. “There’s so many people moving around, but it’s so quiet. It’s hard to explain—no one is yapping on cell phones, cars are not honking,” she explains. Here, her guide to the places and things that really spoke to her.

"Its such a beatiful and calming haven and I am addicted to their waterlemon juice at breakfast. They also have Marmite, which I have a weakness for."

"This vintage shop, called Nincompoop Capacity, had movies playing in it—so cool! It was in the Koenji neighborhood of Tokyo, which has tons of vintage and DIY shops.”

“Definitely eat at Chano-ma. I loved the raised tatami mats and the food served on trays. So peaceful and relaxing after a busy day of exploring the city.”
(Nakameguro Kangyou Bldg. 6F 1-22-4 Kamimeguro, Meguro-ku)

“Another good spot is Harajuku Gyoza Lou. It’s nothing fancy, but they serve the most delicious gyoza. It has a super-simple and friendly atmosphere—worth the wait!”
(6-2-4 Jingumae, Shibuya-ku)
