“About Life [has] the best morning coffee and bread, so it’s my go-to spot in the AM. Or I’ll hit up Saturdays for a mellower moment [of reflection] on the balcony. Chao Chao Bamboo, in central Harajuku, has super good Thai food; Breakfast Club Tokyo—best spot for an American breakfast. You’ll always run into someone you know.”

“This neighborhood is just really relaxing and nice. For my first trip to Tokyo, I spent about a month living there. Part of my routine would be to walk and grab a coffee, then read [a book] on a bench for an hour or two. I felt like the last person on earth.”
