Discover one of the historical districts of Tokyo, filled with small temples, narrow streets and a pleasant atmosphere; eat some of the best Japanese street food.
Take a walk in the districts of Yanaka and Nezu, visiting:
Yanaka, one of Tokyo's most beloved shitamachi areas, is a famous old-fashioned district filled with countless small temples, narrow lively streets, and many 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 neighborhood's small and surprisingly quiet streets.
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.
