YaNeSen Old Tokyo Tour with a Local Guide

With this Yanaka Old Tokyo Tour discover a shitamachi (下町) which was originally an area of the Edo period where the common people lived.

Affectionately known as YaNeSen (Yanaka-Nezu-Sendagi), the area was miraculously spared the destruction of the Great Kanto Earthquake in 1923 and the carnage of the bombings in WW2, which explain why it has managed to retain the tranquillity and charm of an old town.

With a Tea Master, you will be able to enjoy a modernized Japanese ceremonial tea service of matcha green tea and Japanese confectionery – and choose antique cup to drink with.

You will definitely encounter retro scenes of Tokyo where visitors can experience the atmosphere of an unspoiled, traditional urban quarter.

This is Japan, away from buildings and shopping malls. Dive in the heart of the Edo era…
