Beautiful shops, cafes and bars in streets and alleyways lined (mostly) with old-style Japanese architecture, paving stones, and intimate restaurants. Great in mid-July with lanterns bejewelling the streets. Low key, very relaxing and pleasant place to walk, talk 'n eat.

A recently gentrified area of Tokyo, no Geishas here now. Well worth a trip to see this area of bars, restaurants and really interesting shops. Roads are pedestriansed at certain times. A good place for a stroll and see the local people at leisure. Be...More

Kagurazaka is one of my favorite areas in Tokyo. It's low key and no major tourist attractions. But this area has so many great restaurants. It has the air of traditional Japanese life style.

Such a great area - very different from other parts of Tokyo and has some fab cafes and restaurants. Makes for easy wandering around in comparison to central Tokyo so was a welcome break!

We walked through the streets - a bit less crowded and has a dreamy feel with French music playing in the back ground. Not a baguette to be found mind you... so take French quarter with a grain of salt (unless we missed it!) but...More

The neighborhood is technically in Shinjuku but it's really right at Iidabashi, next to the moat of the old Edo castle, and closer to the Imperial Palace than to what most people regard as "Shinjuku." There are many nice backstreets with old Edo- era building...More

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.
