Things to Do
This organic farmer’s market takes place in front of the United Nations University in Aoyama every Saturday and Sunday. There are about 50 stalls with local producers selling fresh fruit, vegetables, and flowers.
This L-shaped area of shacks, caravans, food stalls, craft beer, and good coffee was originally set up as a temporary venue under the name Commune 246. It’s a fantastic little “for the community” venue that recreates something of an East London feel. A great place for a beer when the weather is good.
Museum displaying Japanese and East Asian antique art from the collection of its founder, Nezu Kaichiro. One of the main attractions is the Japanese garden with its stone-paved paths and tea house.
