areaA
The woods around Gakushuin, where many young members of Japan's imperial family have studied, are typical of Mejiro. Mejiro Avenue, the main street that runs past Mejiro Station, has been central to the community's growth.

This area was used for falconry in the past. The town grew quickly after Mejiro Fudo Temple was built and Gakushuin relocated here in 1908 (the 41st year of the Meiji era). There are many famous schools and historical sites nearby, and many men of letters and artists lived in what was called Mejiro's "culture village." From the 1960s, many politicians and business people came to live in the quiet residential neighborhoods close to downtown.
