A famous neighborhood for young people, Jiyugaoka abounds with bars, restaurants, izakayas. Many interesting clothing and accessories stores for the youth can be found here. It's a bit similar to Shimokitazawa(pics) but with an older crowd (late 20s to 30s), and with the cost of things scaling with the age :D. Jiyugaoka station is located one station north of Denyenchofu, a neighborhood where some traditionally rich people of Tokyo live.
