Traditional Food and Culture in an Old Shopping District

Try local food and explore the nostalgic streets of Yanesen.

Yanesen stretches out over two wards; Bunkyoku and Taitoku, and is the generic name of the three old shopping streets; Yanaka, Nezu and Sendagi, of this area. 
In this tour, we will taste the usual Japanese meals such as croquettes, which are very popular among the locals, and onigiri, a traditional Japanese meal. You will also be able to enjoy Japanese food culture in one area.
Other than the cuisine, you will also be introduced to traditional shops that sells Japanese accessories, a hand puppet show with elaborate and expressive puppets, and a shrine with a tunnel of vibrant red torii gates. Live like the locals for a day in Yanesen!

・Purchase cute gifts and food to take back with you as souvenirs.
