Ikejiriohashi is located right on the border between Meguro Ward and Setagaya Ward in Tokyo. Its address places it technically in Meguro Ward, though. Very technically speaking, Ikejiriohashi is the name of the station, which is the point where three different neighborhoods intersect: Ikejiri, Ohashi, and Higashiyama. The area around Ikejiriohashi resides just outside the crowds around downtown Shibuya, and has a very different atmosphere. The streets of Ikejiriohashi offer residents a calmer side of Tokyo with plenty of parks and green space. The Meguro River runs through the neighborhood, so most apartments in the area are close enough to be within walking distance to the many parks lining the river. The cherry trees along the river attract many visitors during hanami (cherry blossom viewing) season in the spring, and you’ll find many street food vendors along the road, creating a very lively community feeling.
