Tokyo Trip to Yanaka Ginza & the Ueno station area.

I live in the Yanaka area, which is a very traditional old town "shitamachi" very close to Ueno and best access is JR Nippori station or Metro Chiyoda line Sendagi station. Yanaka has close to 50 temples and shrines around, a nice traditional shopping street called Yanaka Ginza and one of the largest and oldest cemeteries in Japan where you can see the tomb of the last Shogun.

Everyone who has visited has enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and Ueno is a pleasant 15-20 min. walk from the Yanaka area.

Do enjoy and look for me in the neighborhood. :-)
