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.

We enjoyed the area. It had a unique atmosphere. It had all sorts of wagashi=Japanese sweets, nikuman=steamed buns, french cafes & restaurants galore. Try the Canal restaurant for a lovely view.

It was a good luck to know Kagurazaka at this visit to Tokyo. I enjoyed Kagurazaka’s cute and cosmopolitan atmosphere. Although I had visited Tokyo so many times, I did not hear this area before. This time, I was informed of this area from a Waseda student unexpectedly. This place is really contrast to busy Shinjuku, Shibuya and other large... More

Tokyo is an amazing city, but it can be overwhelming. Whenever you need a break and want to stroll through a peaceful hillside community, go to Kagurazaka. Vintage bikes, kimonos hung out to dry, grandpas making street sushi, outdoor shrines no bigger than a pantry, temples and houses tucked away in secret gardens. No building here is over 3 floors,...

20 mins from Ikebukuro You can see traditional Japanese small shops. It is inside the Yamanote Line, but not so modern, but Japanese. Many sweets shop and restaurants. You can relax with a cup of macha tea.
