Yanaka District: Historical Walking Tour in Tokyo's Old Town

2. Yanaka District: Historical Walking Tour in Tokyo's Old Town

There are so many different aspects of Tokyo. Populated, modern downtown areas like Shinjuku or Shibuya are becoming major symbols of Tokyo and big destinations for travelers. While those districts have much to offer, there are some historical, culturally-rich districts right in the center of this vibrant city. There is a place where you can become a part of the deep, local lifestyle and soak up Tokyo's old neighborhood: the Yanaka District. Yanaka is one of Tokyo's most charming and traditional districts. The neighborhood survived the attacks of WWⅡ and endured all of the big earthquakes of Tokyo. Because of its resilience, Yanaka remains intact as it was decades ago, bringing an air of nostalgia and rustic charm. Throughout the walking tour, you can see the ongoing daily activities carried out in the market, and enjoy local snacks and street foods in the backstreets. To begin, we'll head to Nezu shrine, the oldest in Tokyo, to take amazing photos of the torii gates and gain some insight into Japan's traditional religion, Shintonism. Afterwards, we'll pass through residential areas where many locals live. There are plenty of charming local shops and stalls to explore along the way! We'll stop by one local cafe for an hour break to craft a lucky cat statue (painting experience). To round out the journey, we'll partake in delicious food sampling in Yanaka Ginza, a shopping street which best represents the flavors of Old Tokyo. There, you'll find shops selling selling delectable food and snacks. We can enjoy trying local deli foods. One charactaristic of this walking tour is that getting to know actually japanese lives by hearing real voices from a local guide! I would recommend this tour to any travelers who are interested in seeing the different side of Tokyo and witness the deep local lifestyle. Let's window into the whole different side of Tokyo with us!
