pocket guide to hidden (work)shops of kagurazaka

Most of the commercial activities in Kagurazaka are located on the Waseda Dori, which is not surprising at all. You can find plenty of traditional Japanese shops selling sweets or clothes. Instead of this kind of shops I was more focused on what are the latest trends in Kagurazaka. And with the latest trends I don’t mean stores selling only cool imported stuff, but also products that really made in this area. In the end I discovered, that when you stray from the main road, it is possible to experience something more enchanting. This is my selection of hidden (work)shops in Kagurazaka.
