Strolling Through Yanaka: A Glimpse of Old Tokyo

Experience Authentic Japanese Life in this Historic Town

If you are looking to explore the old streetscapes of Tokyo, this tour is highly recommended. Yanaka, along with the nearby neighborhoods of Nezu and Sendagi, is renowned for its traditional Japanese wooden houses, creating a charming and nostalgic atmosphere.

The tour kicks off at the North Exit of JR Nippori Station, where an English-speaking guide will accompany you. Our first stop is the Yanaka Ginza Shopping Street, a bustling marketplace with about 60 small, old shops that have been around since the 1950s. Here, you’ll find fishmongers, greengrocers, and delicatessens attracting a steady flow of local Japanese customers. Walking through this street, you can truly immerse yourself in the authentic lifestyle of Japan.

After enjoying a lunch at a ramen restaurant, we will take a leisurely stroll through an ancient temple that has been standing since the era of the samurai. While Yanaka might lack the flashy allure of bustling districts like Shibuya or Ginza, it has steadily grown in popularity among international visitors. Come and experience it for yourself!
