Tour outline

  Located in the former grounds of the historic Kanei-ji temple, the spacious Ueno Park is a favourite spot for Tokyoites during the cherry blossom season. Although a destination in itself, the area is also home to a wealth of Japanese arts and culture. Within a small vicinity are some of Japan's best museums, such as the Tokyo National Museum and National Science Museum and National Museum of Western Art.


  Even though it is close to the center of Tokyo and the skyscrapers of the CBD, you can still get a sense of the area's rich history in the atmospheric backstreets of Yanaka and it’s lively shopping arcade, Yanaka Ginza. Here you can sample freshly made street food or enjoy a drink with locals at a cozy izakaya (Japanese style pub).


  As the Tokugawa family temple, Kanei-ji was the spiritual center of old Tokyo, and the surrounding area boasts many beautifully kept temples and shrines. It is also possible to see good examples of traditional buildings and architecture inside this area. You can find vendors specializing in traditional art supplies in the Yanaka district, too. One of the most popular is Isetatsu, a washi (Japanese handmade paper) supplier. Enjoy a change of pace from the hectic streets of the metropolis on a leisurely stroll around Yanaka, and take in the historic scenery, while watching locals go about their daily lives.
