Akasaka Guide

Akasaka is a central city area that is home to the offices of lots of big companies. It was the main post war entertainment district, but has lost a bit of its shine. Overall, it’s considered pretty upmarket, but there are lots of cheapo attractions – parks, shrines, discount stores and cheap eating and drinking locations.
There are plenty of good, reasonable places for lunch covering a variety of cuisines. Bar Del Popolo is a particularly good place to pick up a reasonably priced espresso. Discount importer Yamaya and wholesale supermarket Hanamasa also have branches in the area.
Akasaka Station on the Tokyo Metro Chiyoda Line as well as Tameikesanno Station, Akasaka-Mitsuke Station and Aoyama Itchome Station on the Ginza Line are all located partly or wholly within Akasaka.
