    Yanaka Revealed: Tokyo's Quaint Neighborhood

    Prepare for the Explore Yanaka: Old Town Neighbourhood Walking Tour! Over four hours, you and one of the hosts I have chosen to guide this experience will dive into one of Tokyo's most beloved areas.

    Stroll through Yanaka Ginza

    You will start off at the Dōkan Ota Statue, meeting your host at the historic spot they will tell you stories about. From there, you'll stroll through Yanaka Ginza, a lively street full of local shops and tasty treats. It's a great way to get a feel for the neighborhood's lively vibe.

    Yanaka Cemetery

    Next, you'll visit Yanaka Cemetery, a peaceful sanctuary where time seems to slow down. Keep an eye out for the friendly neighborhood cats—they add to the charm!

    Feeling hungry or thirsty? Make a pit stop at Café Nekoemon, a cozy spot where you can enjoy a cup of coffee while painting a new furry friend.

    Nezu Shrine

    But your adventure isn't over yet! You'll make your way to the stunning Nezu Shrine, a hidden gem nestled among greenery. Take a moment to soak in the serene atmosphere and admire the beautiful architecture before saying goodbye to your host.

    Yuyake Dandan

    Here are a few more tips to make the most of your Yanaka experience:

    • Yuyake Dandan: Don't miss the Yuyake Dandan staircase for panoramic views of the neighborhood.

    • Scai the Bathhouse: Check out Scai the Bathhouse for contemporary art exhibitions in a unique setting.

    • Yanaka Beer Hall: End your day with a cold one at Yanaka Beer Hall, a local brewery serving up craft beers.
