Through an apparent miscommunication between our hotel and this restaurant, we were unable to get a table here. Then we were told by the owner that we weren’t dressed appropriately...but that wasn’t the reason we were refused service. If he hadn’t said that, I wouldn’t...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.
