I frequently pass through Meguro to go home, but never really stop there. Meguro hasn't quite found its identity yet. To me, it used to have a nondescript feeling to it...precisely why I've only passed through it thus far. Used to have small office buildings and ho-hum sort of eateries. Lots of construction going on now though and they seem to be trying to make it into a destination place. However, the stores/restaurants I see opening are just chains or obvious stores that other stations have too. But I wanted to have dinner at Aviland, a small French Mediterranean restaurant about a 10 minute walk from Meguro station. Kenji joined me and we had a very nice dinner with a bottle of wine for a total of 5,000 yen...That's cheap for the quality of what we had. Anyway, on our way back to the station, there was a jazz group playing. It was a particularly cold night, but Meguro had it happening. I will start paying more attention to Meguro now...

Cool photos, thanks for doing the audio/video clip too; it's nice to be able to hear a little bit of the sound when you read about music (there's a famous quote that says "writing about music is like dancing about architecture").

It would be even better if you were there in person...if ya know what I mean.
