Know More about this tour

Meet your guide and small group at a nearby location in the morning or afternoon and get ready to discover Tokyo's historic side on this 3.5-hour walking tour of the Yanaka district.

Listen as your local guide introduces you to the history and culture of the area, which was established as a temple town during the Edo period of the 16th through 19th centuries. Stroll down the charming Yanaka-Ginza, a shopping street from the old days where you can stop for some snacks or traditional sweets. Visit the cemetery of Yanaka Reien, which is a popular spot for cherry blossom-viewing. Perhaps, if you visit in the season, you will see some of those blooming pink flowers yourself. Take time to explore the many temples of the area; wander the labyrinthine network of paths, and soak up the ambiance, imagining what it might have been like to have been here back in the Edo days.

Make sure to ask your guide any last questions before saying goodbye, close to the meeting point, 3.5 hours after you set out.
