Taito ward's Yanaka district in Tokyo was less damaged than other areas in both the Great Kanto Earthquakes in 1923 and World War Ⅱ air raids, so there are still some old streets and houses around there. It is fun walking while seeing and shopping. If you go into side streets, there might be places where you want to see in Japan. In my tour, Former Residence of Great Artist in Yanaka & Ueno Free Tour, I am going to take you to such a side street. Why don't you join me?

As I am a 60 year old man, born in Tokyo, graduated from a university in Tokyo and worked for a leading paper wholesale company at its headquarters for 35 years, I am an Edokko or a native Tokyoite. I am familiar with various interesting places in Tokyo and the Kanto area such as historic spots, scenic beauty, entertainment, restaurants and so on. Although I basically provide several regular walking tours for visitors from abroad, I am willing to arrange your tour plan in a customized way according to your interest. If I receive your inquiry, I am ready to hear your interest and what you want to experience, and discuss your plan with you in advance.
