Although ostensibly an area that is little different from the rest of suburban Tokyo, it’s to Koenji’s credit that it doesn’t take much digging to discover that appearances can be deceptive. In this small community in Suginami Ward, the varied threads of the city’s counterculture come together, creating a neighborhood that punches well above its weight in terms of alternative music, art, fashion and politics.

Maybe I am alone here, but I love thrift shops and second-hand shops! You can find so many cool things there and if it is clean, who cares if it is used? It has more of a story then! The art scene in Koenji looks like a blast!
