Yanaka-Bochi graveyard

by Tak

Yanaka-Bochi graveyardIt's a beautiful sunny day. I went out walking around Yanaka area near Ueno. Yanaka-Bochi graveyard is originally in the property of Kan'ei-ji  which is the Togugawa family's temple. Still their left graves of Shoguns, their family and high ranking Samurai officers. The graveyard of Tokugawa family is really impressive and it shows rather kind Oriental feeling than Japanase traditional culture. 

Yanaka-Bochi graveyard is located just by JR Yamanote-line Nippori station. To stroll in the property is really comfortable and you can see a lot of artistic and cultural tomb stones.

Unfortunately, I haven't created Yanaka tours yet. However I'm preparing them and even though before I open thosee tours, I can guide you to the traditional and cultural town. 

If you have any intrest, let me know by messaging.

“ Friendly, Warm, and Accommodating ”

We started our travels in Japan with Tak taking us around Tokyo. We accomplished so much and had such a good time on our first day that we decided to book Tak for a second day. Tak paid attention To what we wanted to do and who we were and he was a gentle supportive presence as we acclimated ourselves to Tokyo and Japan. His good humor and warm presence felt almost familial. My son and I felt supe...

“ Wonderful Day ”

Tak was fantastic. He worked with us before our trip to plan our day and offered great suggestions. Communication was throughout our planning and our day. For the day of the tour, he met us at our hotel and showed us how to use the subway system. He provided interesting facts, taught us easy ways to remember some key Japanese worlds and has a thorough knowledge of Tokyo and it’s history. He’s ...

It was nice meeting Tak, he’s very friendly and an easy going person. Our first meeting day was somewhat unplanned and a bit complicated, but on the second day, he was able to prepare my itinerary and made it convenient for us to move around to many places through subway. I wanted to book him again after our second meeting but It was unfortunate that he didn’t have enough time to join me on the th...

“ Outstanding ”

5 months ago Traveler: Fiona -   Tour Guide: Tak

Tak-san is an awesome guide who communicated in details with me before my tour. He placed a lot of effort into finding out the places in the theme of my tour and sending me the pics. We went through the highly complicated Tokyo subway system and ate the best soba I ever tasted in my life. He comes highly recommended as he will follow through with your theme of the tour. You must also have a ve...

“ Tak was great ”

8 months ago Traveler: Michael -   Tour Guide: Tak

Tak helped us book our Shinkansen tickets and gave us a lesson on the Tokyo subways ( we are very tech ignorant) and was more than happy to answer any questions and discuss any topic we brought up. The best was when we had issues with our suica card he offered to come to our hotel to help ( this was the day after our tour with him)

“ Ginza Shopping and Music and Dancing at Ginza Kentos ”

1 year ago Traveler: Algernon -   Tour Guide: Tak

Tak and I communicated a lot about the things I am interested in, specifically the type of music I like. He searched for live music venues that fit my taste. We found Kentos in Ginza. After doing some CD shopping and seeing the food areas of the Mitsukoshi department store, we made it to Kentos. It exceeded our expectations. It was a fun night of music and dancing. It was great!

“ Tokyo tour ”

1 year ago Traveler: Lady -   Tour Guide: Tak

Tak was very nice. Communicated with us constantly regarding our tour, giving us suggestions when thw forecast for the day of our tour was rain. It was indeed raining, which we hated coz it was hard to move around the city and it was freezing cold. He tried to give us historic information regarding the sites. And gave us rise crackers as gift. I wish we could have had the tour when it was sunny. W...
