If you know Kagurazaka, you can be a connoisseur of Tokyo! Kagurazaka is a long slopping street which fascinates many Japanese. The reason why is this spot has long history back to Edo era, around 17th century and is famous for nicer shops and restaurant such as Japanese sweets, Kimono, traditional tools and so on. There are many alleys which include "hidden" authentic traditional restaurants where some politicians and celebrities come for secret meetings. And also some winding narrow back streets might make you feel you are in a fairy tale! We walk in some shops and visit one of shrine designed by a world famous architect, Kengo Kuma. Let's go more inside in Tokyo and good luck!

Kagurazaka was an area of tokyo that I never thought of going. Experiencing such a high class and historical area, I was so relieved that I decided to do the tour. The tour guide took us to places that as tourist we will not have through tof going, I felt like a local going through the streets. Micky also took us to the back streets, which was my favorite event, micky explained to us that through this back streets Geisha’s walk to the secluded restaurants that only nobles, politicians and the upper class society. It was such a mysterious and hidden culture which was so fascinating and loved being introduced. We were also shown a geisha house and a public bath. I enjoyed this tour so much because i got introduced to shops and streets that are only known by the locals.

Walking around Kagurazaka was so interesting as I was able to learn more about the area and engage with the locals. The tour started with visiting the shrine which I was really fascinated about as I did not know much about the religion and so learning about what many Japanese people believed in was very interesting. After the shrine we visited a local sweet shop whereby many of the sweets were made from red beans. Tasting the japanese sweets was very tasty and I bought many souvenirs for my friends and family back home. Our tour guide Micky was very friendly and warm so it was like touring around Kagurazaka with a friend. We walked around backstreets which gave me the opportunity to learn about the historical facts of Kagurazaka which I was really interested in. I would recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in learning about the real Tokyo and not just the limelights.
