Yanaka/Nezu/Sendagi

Yanaka-reien cemetery, also famous for its cherry blossoms.

Collectively known as Yanesen, taking the first syllable of each of Yanaka, Nezu and Sendagi, these areas are filled with the atmosphere of the traditional shitamachi neighborhoods in Tokyo. Yanakaginza Shopping Street allows visitors to catch a glimpse of old Japan. Popular for its cherry blossoms, Yanaka-reien cemetery is one of the many perfect places for a stroll in any season. It was also a place well-loved by many literary masters. If you decide to cross the hill road and go through the mazelike alleyways, you will definitely encounter retro sceneries of Tokyo as if you’ve gone on a time trip to the good old days. Why not escape the hustle and bustle of the metropolis and have a traditional Tokyo experience in Yanesen?
