We will visit Yanaka which literally means ' Middle of Valley'. There are many temples there, because Shogun had planned to ward off evil spirits coming from this direction. These days Yanaka become popular for its nostalgic atmosphere. Ueno is famous for its park, museums, and historic structures. Strolling around this area is lots of fun!

What to Expect

You can enjoy sightseeing of not only historical structures but also beautiful nature. Walking around Yanaka gives you opportunity to find an old established store and new modern-designed store. If you are cat person it might be good opportunity to meet Japanese cats. After a tour you can go to Tokyo National Museum , Ameyoko market on your own.
