One of Tokyo's most pleasant dining areas, with some hidden gems, restaurants and bars included, to many to count. In my opinion the area with the best selection of good restaurans and bars. Mostly quite and relaxing athmospheres, not the right place if you want to party. To have a good time, for a nice business dinner, a tete-a-tete, perfect

A classy little neighbourhood – good French eats here (probably due to the proximity of the French school) …. The kind of place you visit if you live or have lived here – not enough for a tourist’s day trip

A mix of Europe and Japan with small shops and cafes that line the road from Kagurazaka station and down to Iidabashi Station. Exit Kagurazaka station and take a right and just walk straight and you will have a great time finding new favorite cafes and shops. There is Starbucks at the end of the road, near the river if...

Kagurazaka has many traditional Japanese shops and great restaurants. It's not a touristy place so you don't have to spend time lining up or wait to be served. You'll find authentic blowfish cuisine and sushi go rounds.

We casually strolled down the streets, stopping for bakery goods, for little souvenirs, and to try on kimonos. We loved seeing what the locals do and where a lot of them go after work.

Kagurazaka is the quiet corner of Tokyo that tourists rarely hear about. It's a charming area filled with interesting resturants and bars, but don't expect much in the way of enlgish.

Staying in Yotsuya / Iidabashi

Neighborhood Profile
Yotsuya / Iidabashi
Yotsuya and Iidabashi are areas that developed around the outer moat of the Imperial palace. Nearby in Kagurazaka, there is an old red-light district with a photogenic feel evocative of the ambiance of old Tokyo. Narrow paths with stone paving remain to this day, and there are long-standing restaurants with geishas and quaint old cafes in townhouse buildings.
