KAGURAZAKA / 神楽坂
Despite being cold, the winter months in Tokyo are often the best time of year to enjoy clear blue skies and sunshine. And so, with the sun on my back, I recently headed down to Kagurazaka for the afternoon – a neighbourhood in Tokyo not too far from Iidabashi station. (There’s a great cafe down by the canal there by the way, check it out.) Kagurazaka is perhaps most famous for its picturesque cobblestone streets, cute French restaurants and sophisticated atmosphere – and was actually a geisha district during the Edo era. I had an amazing lunch and enjoyed wandering about the silent streets. Hopefully the video and photos below will inspire you to visit too.
