Family and Accessibility Friendly


As this is a private plan, infants and children are welcome to participate. The Geishas of Kagurazaka are experienced in entertaining children and are very popular among them. Recently, a one-year-old child enjoyed a Geisha banquet at another venue. Some children even write letters to the Geishas after returning home. Additionally, access to the banquet hall via elevator makes it easier for wheelchair users, those with walking aids, and families with strollers.

Historic Venue


"Shimakin," founded in 1869 (Meiji 2), is the oldest restaurant in Kagurazaka. Initially, it was a beef hotpot restaurant, which was rare in Japan at the time. It also appears in the literary work "The Seven Wonders of Kagurazaka" by the famous author Kafu Nagai. Located near the main Sotobori Street at Kagurazaka-Shita, it is a well-known restaurant among many visitors to Kagurazaka. Of course, it has a great reputation for its delicious eel dishes, and according to the major review site Tabelog, it is ranked fifth among eel restaurants in Shinjuku Ward.

At Shimakin, Geisha banquets can accommodate from 2 to 40 guests. This allows for great flexibility for couples and small groups, enhancing the convenience for travelers. Additionally, with a large hall that can accommodate up to 40 people, it is also ideal for group customers.
