Kagurazaka is one of the famous area for fashionable shopping and dining. A slope street leads you from Iidabashi station to Kagurazaka station. There are lot of shops and restaurants along the street, and many of them have old atmosphere from Edo era. Turn at a corner of a road, and you’ll find narrow streets. Amazingly, more traditional style restaurants are there. Kagurazaka was used to be one of the big hanamachi (geisha district), and still geisha lives there.
