Hiroo is home to numerous cafes, restaurants, and unique shops.
Some of our favorite cafes include Appasionato and Segafredo, both of which have outdoor seating and excellent cappuccino. Closer to our studio is Starbuck’s, which is right next door.
Our favorite place to eat is Island Veggie, a macrobiotic restaurant with an eclectic Hawaiian-style menu. The food’s delicious, the price is right, and the vibe is very cool. For dinner, try Yamafuji, a Japanese restaurant specializing in organic, locally produced foods is located nearby on Gaien-Nishi Dori. Further down the shopping street is Priya, which serves very good Indian food and includes many vegetarian options. A short 10-minute walk outside the Hiroo shopping area will get you to Ta-im, which offers the most authentic and tasty Israeli food outside Tel Aviv prepared and served in one of the friendliest dining establishments in Tokyo.
For take-out, the popular bakery Burdigala has a shop in Hiroo.
At Natural Mart, you can find organic food, including a decent selection of fresh fruits and vegetables. As of August 2012, National Azabu , arguably the best-stocked international supermarket in Japan, will reopen in a new building across from Arisagawa Park.
If you’ve just finished a sweaty class and want to relax in a bath, the Hiroo Sento is directly across the street from our studio.
