Meguro Station Area

Japan's Top 100 Destinations 2012
After getting out from the Meguro station what you may see is a typical view of mid-sized downtown area. Around Meguro station there are some ethnic restaurants. Unlike other areas of Tokyo, there aren't so many people around and most of them seem to be local residents who live in condos around the station. To some people, however, Meguro area is worth exploring because it has some nice parks, historical sites both on west and east side of the station. Up north from the Meguro station is Ebisu station around which has a number of popular attractions such as Ebisu Garden Place and Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography which is walking distance from Meguro station as well.
