Yanaka has a nice retro atmosphere and is attracting attention as a place to visit. An abundance of temples, old houses, and narrow streets makes it perfect for taking a stroll, away from the hustle and bustle of a big city.
Asakura Museum of Sculpture is a former residence and studio of sculptor Fumio Asakura and is currently exhibiting a collection of his sculptures. Visiting the courtyard of Fumio Asakura is a must, with a tranquil and peaceful environment, it makes you feel as though time has stopped.
After a stroll, it’s time for snacks.
 
Try some freshly made snacks such as minced meat cutlet, doughnuts, or grilled sweetfish at Yanaka Ginza Shopping Street. This shopping street has shops such as fishmongers, butchers, and liquor stores where the locals enjoy cold beverages whilst relaxing.
From Yanaka to Asakusa, we will take a small community bus called “Megurin”.

Asakusa is one of the most famous tourist destinations. For the first timers, you can’t miss the Thunder Gate with a colossal red lantern, an iconic symbol of Tokyo. Nakamise Shopping Street is located behind the Gate, lined with about 90 shops leading to impressive Sensoji Temple.

For second timers, why not try some quirky spots such as a bird cafe or plastic food sample shop?

Would you like to have an unforgettable experience in Japan?
I am Japanese born and bred but have spent happy years in Canada and the UK bringing up children and introducing Japanese culture/language at local schools.
I love hiking, traveling, eating and interacting with people so guiding is a perfect job for me. ( I'm a Government Certified Guide Interpreter.) I can take you to all the must-see places as well as quaky places in and around Tokyo. Making a plastic food sample, joining a bon dance at a summer festival, hiking at Mt. Takao followed by a relaxing hot spring bath....There are so many things to offer!
You will have a deeper understanding of Japanese culture and a better experience, if you have a friendly professional guide like me!
