Where: Waseda-dori, Kagurazaka 1-6

When you think Kagurazaka, that sophisticated neighborhood of Tokyo, do you think French? You might not, but the area now boasts a strong Francophone presence. However, at the end of July, though, the area steps back in time to the days of the early 20th century, when it was renowned for its geisha houses and fine kaiseki cuisine. A local street festival will take over the streets and help bring back some of the old Edo atmosphere: the area was, after all, once at the edge of Edo castle. Make sure to wear a yukata (summer kimono) to get a discount from the many vendors in the area.
