Shimo-Meguro ( Meguro-ku)
Meguro, situated in the southwest of Tokyo, is largely a residential district loved by its residents for its beautiful hilly landscape with steep rises and descents. The history of the area goes back to the 1600's when Meguro was a small village, but it mainly developed after the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923. After the Earthquake people started moving out of the city to suburbs, thus creating new neighborhoods.
Meguro is one such neighborhood that slowly developed into a genteel locality with a unique and remarkable landscape. Meguro has several historical and cultural sights that attract visitors from not only Japan, but from around the world. Meguro is also known as one of the most expensive places to live in Tokyo, however, we offer affordable priced apartments in the area within a 10 - 15 minute walk to Meguro station on the JR Yamanote Line.
