[New Tour 2022] Yanaka Nostalgic Walking Tour

Have you ever heard of Yanesen?

This area gets its name from 3 different districts in northern Tokyo’s Bunkyo City: Yanaka, Nezu and Sendagi.
If we talk about Tokyo, many people would think of Asakusa, Shibuya or Harajuku.
So, why Yanesen? Because it preserves
the retro appearance of the so-called “Shitamachi” suburb.

Here many buildings from the Edo period remain, being spared from the WW2 bombings.

Many of those are now cafes and restaurants, becoming tourist attractions. Yanesen is one of the most fascinating areas of Tokyo.

You will be introduced to its charm during this tour, with many short stops between major attractions!
* Duration: 3 hours
