5 traditional Kagurazaka izakayas you'll love (¥5000 or less)


Here are five interesting izakayas in the beautiful Kagurazaka district. They all have that unique traditional charm both in their atmosphere and the cuisine that they serve.

Feel free to follow favy!


Kappo is a refined type of traditional Japanese cuisine consisting of both raw and cooked fish, along with a variety of vegetable and tofu dishes. Kappo cuisine is usually very expensive, but at Sanshuya you can experience it at a fairly reasonable price. The concept of the restaurant is to bring Kappo to the many, and as such, you can walk into the restaurant casually and enjoy a full Kappo meal with drinks for less than ¥4,000.

Sanshuya is located very near Iidabashi Station.

Honke Abeya

Honke Abeya is a stylish, clean-lined yakitori (grilled chicken skewers) izakaya. Their perfectly grilled yakitori made with free-range domestic chicken doesn't disappoint! Although it's a bit more expensive than most yakitori restaurants (skewers are about ¥200 to ¥400), the quality is outstanding so you really get good value for your money.

Another good thing about this izakaya is they have a fine selection of sakes and some good Japanese craft beers too.

If you're willing to pay a little more, you can also enjoy one of their superb courses for about ¥5,000.

The restaurant is spacious so they can accommodate large groups.

Honke Abeya is located about a 5-minute walk from either Iidabashi or Kagurazaka stations.

Kagurazaka Oishimbo

If you are looking for an incredibly quaint Japanese restaurant experience, then Oishinbo is where you should go! They specialize in tofu, vegetable and kaiseki-inspired dishes. You get to enjoy tasty seasonal foods with seasonal alcohols too.

Best of all, it has a hidden, old house-like atmosphere with tatami mats and traditional low tables.

Expect to pay ¥4,000 to ¥5,000 for dinner.

Oishinbo is located about a 5-minute walk from Kagurazaka or Iidabashi stations.

Ika Center

This laid-back izakaya specializes in squid sashimi. Perhaps you've had raw squid before and weren't too fond of it, but the quality squid sashimi served at Ika Center might just change your opinion of it. The squids they used are kept live in tanks inside the restaurant so you'll get to taste the freshest squid sashimi there is. If squid just isn't your thing, they have plenty of other types of tasty fresh sashimi as well.

Order a-la-carte exactly what you want or enjoy a course dinner. All-you-can-eat options are available.

Kagurazaka Ika Center is located a 5-minute walk from Kagurazaka Station.

Robata Sakanamachi Gogou

Stepping into this kominka-style (built like a Japanese traditional house) is like going back in time to the Meiji Era. The traditional atmosphere is warm and relaxing, and the 'robatayaki' cooking-style (literally fireside cooking) adds even more authentic charm and comfort to the place too. You can enjoy some quality fish and seasonal vegetables from all over Japan.

A fun part of the experience is to order foods served with an earthen charcoal brazier that you cook yourself at your table.

Courses are also available for around ¥5,000.

The izakaya is located around a 5-minute walk from Kagurazaka Station.
