Yanaka Ginza

Yanaka Ginza is a shopping street, situated 5 min from Nippori station on the JR Line. There are approximately 70 stores lines up on the street. There still remain buildings from another era that are quite rare and offer an intense nostalgia. Most stores are relatively small but interesting, and it can be fun just seeing the stores.Furthermore, there is a famous staircase that leads to Yanaka Ginza called "Yuyake Dandan." Since "Yuyake" means sunset in Japanese, this place is famous for a beautiful view of the sunset. It might be a great idea to visit Yanaka Ginza at the end of an afternoon and see the sunset.

Nezu Jinja

This is a historical shrine that has been appointed as an important national cultural property. It is also a famous place for azalea trees. As a result, Azalea festival is held here in spring, when 3000 azalea flowers bloom. There is also an annual festival held in September each year.
