Duck off the main street into the side alleys for a glimpse of old Tokyo, with lots of old wooden buildings. Not a ‘must do’ in Tokyo, but enjoyable.

This an old part of Tokyo with many temples and shrines hidden down back streets. You may need a guide for this tour as you can easily get lost.

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.
