Enjoy the Retro, Working Class Feel of Yanesen! Here are the Top 20 Picks for Where to Go in this Charming Area!
Yanesen, the combined nickname for the areas of Yanaka, Nezu, and Sendagi in Tokyo, strongly retains a working class feel along with elements of Japanese culture, and has numerous shrines and temples lining its streets. There are a large number of these holy sights packed into a small area, so it is perfect for groups of friends on a hunt for shrine seals. There are atmospheric walking tours available but you can also feel free to enjoy touring the area alone. Enjoy stepping into the past at one of the galleries, or cute, retro cafes popular with overseas visitors.
