What to Expect

Yanesen (a shortening of Yanaka, Nezu, and Sendagi) is a historic district from Tokyo’s Edo period known for its traditional style. Your guide will take you to visit Yanaka-Ginza, a shopping street from the old days.
As you’ll find on the 3.5-hour tour, Yanaka has many interesting sights to see, including the Yanaka Reien (cemetery), which is famous as a site for viewing cherry blossoms in the spring.
