Overview

Yanesen is a quite unique area in Tokyo. Because this area has escaped from major disasters like big Tokyo earthquake in 1923, it still maintains old nostalgic streets and many historical temples in quiet atmosphere. Let's explore this area with me looking for "hidden gems".

What to Expect

You will find not only impressive temples, Buddha statues and nostalgic streets but also unique crafts shops.
You can buy Japanese sweets and snacks at traditional shops.
If you want, you can try Japanese matchya green tee with an authentic tea bowl with additional fee. ( 1000 yen for one person)
You may meet street cats also.

Highlights

  • Tennouji Temple
  • Yanaka Cemetry
  • Yanaka Ginza (option)
  • Jyomyouin Temple
  • Ueno Park

Mack was wonderful with our group and extremely attentive to our needs. We were Travelling with 2 young children and Mack was easy going and catered the tour specifically to what we could do. He even went above and beyond and helped us with the logistics of our transportation, baggage and hotels. Wow amazing service for the price we paid! Thanks Mack for your kindness and hospitality. We will visit Japan again and hope you soon!
