Great place to walk around. Lots of restaurants and little cafes and food is really affordable without burning a big hole in your pocket. One of those places where you have to venture into small lanes to find 'gems'! Only down thing was a particular stretch of road that is steep and hard to push a pram/luggage up.

Our hotel was in Iidabashi, next to Kagurazaka. One afternoon I walked by myself to Kagurazaka. There are so many cute, locally owned shops...a hat store, a senbei store, a dessert locale popular with locals...and walking along the cobblestone narrow streets you'll stumble upon a French area with cute french restaurants.

The stoll up and down the main drag is not complete until you venture off into the narrow, winding cobblestone paths.

Many japanese restaurants and shops. It seems to be on the country and not in the middle of Tokyo. No problem to walk there alone in the middle of the night.

Area of little shops and restaurants with a feel of the old city. Nice to wander around and experience but not just for tourists

I visited here quite by accident recently. I was looking for a certain store or something and dropped in on this quaint area. It was very nice just walking around and looking at the stores and treading the cobblestone streets. Found some nice sweet shops as well. I felt almost at home here, but there was enough quaintness about it... More

Very quiet and a good staging camp for anyone backpacking in Tokyo. Food in the neighbourhood is great, but for a more complete Japan experience, you'll definitely want to head out into other districts. The good news? There's a major subway station smack in the middle of this place!

many many good restaurants, hidden in the small lane. But at the major lane, the restaurant is also delicious but with reasonable price which many local people come to enjoy the food. Many many local speciality store here, and wroth to spend half a day to enjoy how normal Tokyo people have one day.

It was my first time in Tokyo and a Japanese friend met me for dinner on a Sunday evening. We took the Toei Oedo line from Higashi Shinjuku, which was only a few stops away from Iiadabashi station, where Kagurazaka is. We walked along the street, uphill to our seafood restaurant. My impression was that it was a nice, busy... More

KAGURAZAKA has many nice restrants and old traditional but new international atomsphere, so this contrast attract many foreigners, especially many French live here.

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.
