Once a prominent hanamachi (geisha district) in the Edo Period (1603-1867), today Kagurazaka draws visitors with cobblestone streets, a broad selection of French restaurants, and an elegant atmosphere. Throughout history, the neighborhood has preserved a spirit of gathering for entertainment and leisure; today, it's Tokyo's hub of traditional fine dining. Try luxurious dishes with a European touch, or immerse yourself in the local urban culture in tucked-away cafes and trendy bookstores. Depending on the season of your visit, you might even get to witness the picturesque cherry blossoms in the streets.
