Sarugakuchō (猿楽町?) is a district of Chiyoda, Tokyo, Japan, consisting of 1-chōme and 2-chōme. As of March 1, 2007, its population is 656. Note that the Shibuya ward also has a district with the same name.

Sarugakuchō is located on the north part of Chiyoda. It borders Kanda-Surugadai to the north and east, Kanda-Ogawamachi to the south, Misakichō, and Nishi-Kanda and Kanda-Jinbōchō to the west. The Kinka-dōri Ave forms its western boundary.

A commercial district, Sarugakuchō is also home to several educational institutions.

Today, there is a controversy over renaming the district's name Kanda-Sarugakuchō, which had been used before the enforcement of the addressing system modernization.
