Kagurazaka 神楽坂

A trendy neighborhood of upscale shops, traditional Japanese fine dining, and European cuisine

Kagurazaka's roots as a shopping district can be traced back to the Edo period. Back then the neighborhood was known as a geisha district, and a few houses survive to this day.

During the Meiji period (1868-1912) Kagurazaka became an entertainment and shopping district that bustled with people visiting temples, or gathering at night stalls. Today, Kagurazaka remains one of Tokyo's places to be, with fancy cafes, cool shrines and restaurants for fine dining.
