Shimokitazawa is a perfect place to go for a good variety of second hand, vintage and thrifting clothing. You may also find handmade and unique pieces by some original brands here.
Not only is shimokitazama well-known for cheap vintage second hand fashion, you can also find tons of options for cool cafes here, with good food for fairly cheap price.
Kichijoji is an ideal neighborhood for a leisure walk around, since unlike other places, here is not packed with tourists.
I suggest to spare most of your shopping time for kichijoji, since lots of goods can be purchased for a cheaper price here.
We also visited the Ghibli museum, a little paradise for every Studio Ghibli fan. This was such a memorable experience in my life. Inside Ghibli museum, different artworks are being displayed, it feels like some sceneries are brought into real life. Make sure to purchase the ticket beforehand, they can only be reserved in advance.
