À la Kagurazaka



Tokyo's classy hill


Tokyo boasts an almost uncountable amount of shopping and dining districts. Kagurazaka is not only one of the most authentic and chic, but also definitely the most French district. 
Two French schools are located in the neighborhood, and so the area has a significant French population, and you will find many fancy French brasseries next to the long established Japanese restaurants with traditional facades. This fusion display differentiates Kagurazaka from Tokyo's many other districts.

Whilst located in the middle of Tokyo, Kagurazaka is blessed by a cozy and laid-back atmosphere with leafy trees lined up along the main street. Regardless from the time of the day, the district is ideal for shopping, dining, or just to take a stroll.

By venturing into the narrow side alleys, you can discover a more authentic Kagurazaka. You might even stumble upon geisha houses that take you back to an older Tokyo, ...with probably a French brasserie next to them!

As one of Tokyo's more old-fashioned districts, the noodle to slurp in Kagurazaka is not ramen nor udon. Soba is the specialty here, and you will pass a wide array of long established soba restaurants as you stroll.
