Yanaka, one of the most beloved shitamachi areas of Tokyo, is an old-fashioned popular district, filled with a countless number of small temples, narrow lively streets, and a lot of old and newly established shops. Shitamachi – meaning “lower city” – are districts of Tokyo characterized by small pathways, many tiny shops, a lot of cats, and a quiet and unique atmosphere.
Start the experience in Uguisudani and reach the nearby Yanaka cemetery passing through the once gigantic Kaneiji temple, supported by the Tokugawa Family. Then move to the beautiful Nezu shrine walking through the small and surprisingly quiet streets of the neighborhood.
Head to Asakura Museum of Sculpture, former studio and house of the artist Fumio Asakura, who contributed to the design of the house.
Enjoy a walk through Yanaka Ginza, the local shopping street, and treat yourself to some tasty street foods, directly from the small shops of the area. End the experience in Nippori station.
