After I went to Meguro.....
At first, Meguro in my imagine is just the area that surrounded with office building. But in fact, there are many interesting shop and the places that make me know more about Japan's history, such as, temple and more.
As Meguro is the town that have both modern and past atmosphere , i think you could discover many new things in your daily life there.
