Yanaka half day Tour with private guide and traditional experience

Yanesen is considered as the Old Tokyo Neighborhood, or “shitamachi”, which translates to low city. A popular activity here includes walking along wooden houses and silent temples while smelling fresh brewed coffee and spotting cats.

The tour begins with a visit to the Nezu Shrine, one of the most beautiful shrine in Tokyo due to its slope of red torii gates. We continue the walking tour exploring paved alleys of old houses, temples and precious small traditional gardens. Later on, dive into the life of the locals with visits to small shops for second-hand kimono, traditional crafts, and local products. Lastly we move onto the peace and tranquillity of Yanaka Cemetery; this is the largest cemetery in Tokyo and is also surrounded by greenery that gets filled with beautiful cherry trees in spring.

Enrich this tour by adding a traditional experience that is customized according to your preferences: food, drink or souvenir.
