Azabu-juban Restaurant Guide

Azabu might have a high-class image as an exclusive residential area. Even here Azabu-Juban in Tokyo's Minato ward has a working class, downtown feel. During the Edo period this area was in a low plain and the high humidity made it a difficult place to live. But thanks to river and soil management projects in the Meiji era, it developed into a bustling shopping center that rivaled Kagurazaka.The part of the Azabu-Juban shopping district that stretches from Ichinohashi to Sendaizaka is the site of seasonal festivals - a place to unwind right in the heart of the city. A statue of the model for Ujo Noguchi's children's song, "Red Shoes", Kimi Iwasaki, stands in Patio Juban. Due to the steep fluctuation in real estate prices during the disco-loving years of the Bubble economy, no trains ran through this area for some time. This gave rise to the nickname "Solitary Island on Land", leading to a swelling number of people who hired cars or taxis in the district.Afterwards, in 2000, a subway station opened there, followed by Roppongi hills.Though its environment and appearance have changed dramatically in recent years, it remains as always a place for relaxation and entertainment for adults.
