Dainkanyamacho or simply Dainkanyama is a district of the Shibuya ward known for its fashion boutiques, restaurants and open cafes.
The area is very similar to the Aoyama district. The back streets are filled with old houses converted to fashion shops, a large number of this designers are graduates from harajuku (ura-hara), a step before the more expensive Aoyama.
The open cafes usually full on weekends, are recently seen a decrease on the number of customers, perhaps due to the number of foreigners that left the country after the eartquake.
