Profile of Azabujuban Shotengai

Azabujuban Shotengai

Azabujuban is a town that has flourished since ancient times. The shotengai (shopping street) is lined with over 300 stores, including long-standing restaurants that have existed since the Edo Period and modern cafes and shops. The street expands across the Azabujuban O-dori, Patio Dori and the whole of Sendaisaka. The embassies of multiple countries are in this area and many foreigners reside here, so it also has a rich international aspect.



Azabujuban has convenient transportation. The closest station is Azabujuban Station on the Toei Subway Oedo Line and the Tokyo Metro Nanboku Line. It faces major roadways such as the Loop Line Three and the Azabu Dori, and many metropolitan bus routes pass through here. You can also drive a car in the shopping street. Popular areas like Roppongi, Hiroo and Shirokane are also within walking distance.



Events are held in every season. In particular, the Azabujuban Noryo Festival held in August is a popular event with around 40,000 people visiting over two days. There are also events that are not only entertaining for tourists, but also fulfil an important role in supporting the daily lives of the local residents, such as the Shichifukujin Meguri (Seven Lucky Gods Pilgrimage) and the Tori no Ichi Bazaar.
