a pleasant, low-paced neighbourhood and home to some of tokyo's best stores, daikanyama is one of our fav shopping grounds in the city. but the area offers more than a-grade retail, and also has plenty of great arts venues. daikanyama art street is an annual event, this year held on aug 20-26 [9.30am-9pm], that rallies a string of these places for a collective cultural program. themed not authority, but art, there'll be some interesting gigs, exhibitions and film screenings. click [here] to view daikanyama art street's full program [japanese only]. location: old section of kyuyamate dori [daikanyama].
