Yanaka, Nishinippori

4.1
A quaint neighborhood in the sprawling metropolis of Tokyo, Yanaka features meandering alleys, small stores, and a vast traditional cemetery. A visit to this area allows you to discover the capital off the beaten track, as few tourists ever make it this far east. Follow cherry blossom-lined streets to the Yanaka ginza shopping street, full of traditional arts suppliers selling pigments and brushes, as well as unique artisan souvenirs.

  • It is a place that I always visit when I visit the grave this time, but I wanted to see the Himalayan cedar in the valley by all means, and visited it for the first time after visiting the grave. What is it that there are such Himalayan cedars in the valley? I've been playing in the valley since I was in elementary school, but I really appreciate my friend who taught me that there are such Himalayan cedars.

  • A neighborhood not so far from Ueno Park where you can take a leap into the past in old Tokyo. A neighborhood full of small temples and adjacent cemeteries. To visit calmly.
