Jongno 3-ga, Seoul...

Yeah right. I feel this is only on the list for political correctness. Top three in the world?

Coolest appears to be a euphemism for gentrified.

Worked for Timeout in the 1970s when it was in a small office in Kings Cross London. Survived the times as they were. Don't agree with this list.

Japanese neighbourhoods are cool, if you like streets with no trees, no benches to sit on, no pavements to walk along, just cars, cars, cars, and endless boring concrete buildings.

You should leave Tokyo sometimes.

We have roads with sidewalks. Wide roads. Nearly all large houses, very few apartment blocks. Wide-open farming fields. Pristine beach. Long clean flowing rivers. Fresh air by the lung full. Nighttime is silence.

Otay Mesa, San Diego.

At Zichi. Would love to visit there. Sounds great and probably nice for outdoor painting as well. Stay happy.

We have lots of sidewalks in Yamato-shi as well but lots of slobs toss garbage all the time. I get on them daily during my exercise routines.

The tallest building in our area is one five-floor apartment block. We enjoy the wide-open views and great skies with puffy clouds.

I am also happy except for the summer months we have few tourists.

Believe me, I would love to.

(But I think the article was about cities, and sadly, as you know, only tourists or newbies would ever think that Tokyo was full of cool neighbourhoods).

We live in a city, called Tatsuno City, Hyogo. 80,000 people, 38,000 homes. But unlike any other city, we have green countryside, farming, beaches, fishing. There is no downtown or city center. There's no entertainment district and row after row of nightclubs. We don't have concrete and skyscrapers.

You can at least enjoy a few videos from here

Very likely. I smiled seeing Leith at No. 4. I don't think it would have got that position when I was a kid. But there are many reason to like the place, not least this song.

"rated neighbourhoods for great vibes, food, drink, nightlife, emerging culture, community spirit and resilience"

Aaaaand that's how Surrey Hills gets on the list.

My neighbourhood is so cool it refuses to be acknowledged on such an uncool list.

@zichi, thanks. That's not much of a video, but I think the place is worthy of some more research for my next visit to Japan. Keep up with those brushes!

The coolest spot is anyone's call, it's were you feel happy and comfortable and for all i care it could be the neighborhood bar down the street.

I'm neither tourist nor newbie, and Tokyo is my favorite city on the planet. I love exploring various neighborhoods in the city.
