This is my favorite little town in Tokyo. There's a country feel in the middle of the big city. Little shop line the main street. Each specializing in their own delicacies. I love to just spend a day and hang out and roam the streets. Big contrast to Shinjuku and it's red light district. Also very different than the glitz of Akihabara.

this place has changed so much in the past decade or so. there are so many restaurants to choose from and its back streets are so much fun to adventure through.

We ventured to Kagurazaka on a Sunday to stroll and enjoy the atmosphere. This is the French quarter of Tokyo with many French bistros and patisseries. The main road was turned into a pedestrian zone for the day making for a wonderful experience. If your schedule allows, do venture to this part of town for a very different type of a Tokyo encounter.

Definitely this neighborhood is worth a trip. Specially after you visit the fancy areas. This is the truly traditional Tokyo's experience.
It's a charismatic and charming neighborhood where you can find unpretentious shops and restaurants. Prices are significantly lower than in other touristic areas.
we visited it in the same day that we've been in Ginza. We were sick of fancy department stores and shopaholics. This place feels more authentic. Tinny streets with some traditional houses, women wearing kimonos and wood sandals passing by.

We can enjoy a kind of mixed culture there. Narrow lanes are full of traditional Japanese restaurants and western cafes and bars. Achademic as well. Students and rich adults share this nice town. The choice is quite big.
