Full description
Yanaka, selected as one of the top 100 beautiful and historical natural features of Japan, is an increasingly popular destination for international visitors. Enjoy some time away from the busy modern city and experience the Tokyo of the past.

Yanesen (a shortening of Yanaka, Nezu, and Sendagi) is a historic district from Tokyo’s Edo period known for its traditional style. Your guide will take you to visit Yanaka-Ginza, a shopping street from the old days.

As you’ll find on the 3.5-hour tour, Yanaka has many interesting sights to see, including the Yanaka Reien (cemetery), which is famous as a site for viewing cherry blossoms in the spring.

Over the years many great Japanese writers have come to this area for inspiration. From the vantage point of a slope, you’ll be able to look across to a labyrinth of pathways, with views that evoke a feeling of traveling back in time.
