What to Expect

Yanesen is the collective word of 3 neighborhoods of Yanaka, Nezu, Sendagi, located in Northeast part of Tokyo and very popular among non-Japanese people for its old time atmosphere. I know the ropes to enjoy this area as a long-term resident and will guide you around beautiful shrine, Zen temple, craft shops with 100 years of tradition, small art galleries, mom & pop shops, popular izakaya, etc... in small alleys. You can have the interaction with the local people as well.

“ Junko’s magical tour…. ”

Exploring Yanaka, Nezu and Sendagi felt like stepping into another “time” compared to the traffic and congestion of other parts of Tokyo. Junko’s knowledge of these neighborhoods and the people who live here serve to provide a completely personal tour weaving rich Japanese history and culture with modern day lives and activity. I highly recommend Junko and her Yanesen tour for anyone looking to learn more about Japanese culture in a very quaint and relaxing yet fast paced atmosphere. We explored so much in just a few short hours. Thank you Junko for helping me to find the perfect teas for friends back home and of course the gift of nigari. I can’t wait to return to Yanesen to explore the alleyways with my husband!

“ Interesting walk through Ya-Ne-Sen ”

Nakahama-san was a very patient guide and took time to explain a lot at each of the many places we stopped by while walking through Yanaka, Nezu and Sendagi. The whole area was very interesting as it was a mix of residences and many little shops at every street. There was the traditional Daikokuya rice cracker shop, a family run sake store, and we even ate some freshly prepared Konnyaku jelly. There were many other places within the area that Nakahama-san showed us. We still have a copy of the hand-drawn map she gave us and may return to explore more of Ya-Ne-Sen another time.
