Yanaka has a nostalgic Showa era atmosphere. Recently, it has become famous in a town where cat lovers gather. This tour introduces you to places to take pictures and eat while walking around traditional commercial facilities and buildings. Why don't you enjoy a different sightseeing in Tokyo? Yanaka has many old houses that survived the Great Kanto Earthquake and the war. Walking distance from Ueno Park. It's only about 5 kilometers away from Tokyo Station, but it's like a different world. 1) Photo spot tour There are old buildings that remain from before the war, so you can feel like you are on a time machine. If you're lucky, you might meet a cute local cat. We will take you to a local cat haunting spot. There are cat goods in the town, so it's good to walk with the theme of "cats". 2) Yanaka Walking Let's take a walk in the peaceful Yanaka town where you can forget the hustle and bustle while being located in Tokyo. It is a tour that feels the humanity of downtown. There are also many traditional crafts. For example, the finger puppet "Ekichi", which is popular with foreigners visiting Japan, bamboo craft shops, stamps, and candy crafts. You can go to "Ueno Sakuragi Atari". 3) Introduction of Yanaka food Kikumi senbei, donuts with the motif of "Yanaka Shippoya" cat tail, local beer at "Yanaka Beer Hall", eating comparison of various menchi-katsu, natural shaved ice of "Himitsudo" .. .. Enjoy gourmet exploration! 4) Detour calligrapher [Option] A 20-minute casual calligrapher by a calligrapher in the town of Yanaka. We will also give you simple guidance. Why don't you enjoy brushes for the first time in a long time while feeling nostalgic for your childhood calligraphy? At the end, you can take your favorite "calligraphy" on Shikishi to commemorate it!

An active guide will guide you to the spots to stop by in Yanaka. Optional detour calligraphy experience 2000 yen / person.

I am a personal guide for foreigners visiting Japan, but due to the recent situation, I have planned this tour for people living in Japan. I usually walk around the city looking for photo gourmet spots that will please foreigners. Yanaka is one of the most popular destinations for foreigners throughout the four seasons. Let's explore my favorite town of Yanaka together You can optionally add a detour calligraphy experience that is very popular with foreigners. How about remembering your childhood today when you don't have the opportunity to use a brush in your daily life? Please experience the traditional culture that Japan is proud of. The additional charge is 2000 yen per person. It takes 20 minutes. It is preferable to make a reservation the day before, but you are welcome even on the day.

Introducing photogenic points

Old buildings that escaped the war, downtown-style shopping streets and unique shops. If you are lucky, you can meet a cat. Searching for cat motifs is also fun. Yanaka has small diameters and it is difficult to understand even if you look at the Google map, but it is okay if you walk with me ♪
