  • I like to feel the casual atmosphere of local people, even though it has become a touristy street. The Yanaka Ginza continues onto a street, where you can feel a real local atmosphere.  more »

  • Open air shopping and eating streets. There are restaurants and food stall vendors too. Few hand made craft shops and souvenir shops. Souvenirs are unique to the area not usual types (the type you can find anywhere). Small area but wasn't too busy. Love the sake stall. Drinking on the street legally!
  • Very atmospheric part of Tokyo, little quirky shops and food stalls, also Mediterranean restaurant, lamp making workshops, Indian restaurant. Many temples and You cemetery near by... If you love cats... This place it's all about cats... It's worth staying there for a day or two to enjoy atmosphere.
