In Tokyo as a student or traveler? Uguisudani is a great place to spend a month (or more!). For travelers, being on the Yamanote Train Line has many advantages, and students of Tokyo University and Tokyo University of the Arts will find this location most convenient.
In the area there are many izakayas with a historic atmosphere. There are also many popular bento shops scattered about, offering cheaper lunch alternatives (even some for 263 yen!). You can also get to Kappabashi from here, which is famous for selling food replicas and cooking related items.
