Located very close to Shibuya and Shinjuku, Yoyogi Uehara has matured into a town which embraces the new while cherishing the old downtown atmosphere. It is a beautiful residential area in central Tokyo, and is very safe, making it ideal for walking and enjoying its local charm. The town has a nostalgic feel to it with locally-loved shops, such as tofu shops, donut shops, and trendy cafés. Take a few minute walk from the station and you will find a historical shrine and a public bath that has been loved for generations. Please enjoy Yoyogi Uehara, a town where you can experience local life while being in the center of the world-renowned Tokyo metropolis.
"Yoyogi-Uehara is a town with both old and new shops."
Yoyogi Uehara is a town with new and also old shops. The number of old shops has decreased but there are still some long-established shops remaining. Located near Shibuya and Shinjuku, Yoyogi Uehara is very convenient and at the same time provides a calm atmosphere. I enjoy living here. During the festival of the Yoyogihachimangu shrine, the whole neighborhood is colorfully decorated and the worshipers parade carrying the mikoshi along the street create a festive feeling. There are many seasonal events worth visiting. Overseas guests are often interested in our shop. They want to know what kind of shop it is, and sometimes people who know Tofu come by to purchase some. It is a family owned business started by my Grandfather. I have worked here for 15 years and I am the 3rd generation owner of this shop which celebrates 85th anniversary this year. We start making Tofu at 5:30 A.M., they are ready by noon and we sell them in the afternoon. We sometimes go around by car selling the Tofu. My recommended recipe is to add few drops of soy sauce, grated ginger, and some red pepper & spice mix, to a freshly fried Tofu. It goes great with beer! You can get quite full when you eat a whole pack. If you want to enjoy a healthy meal there is also a bean curd byproduct called Unohana
