Yanaka is a one of the few remaining shitamachi old town neighbourhoods which survived the Great Kanto Earthquake in early 1923. Here, you can still see many old houses and building. The atmosphere is quite different from the modern side of Tokyo, and you get the sense that you've traveled back in time to the good old times. Let's enjoy "Another Tokyo" with us! 

We'll walk through a shopping street where locals buy their food from each of the many speciality stores, rather than from a large supermarket. We'll grab food at about several different places, stopping along the way to eat. You can take a look in some of the many cute shops lining the streets. Then we'll have some freshly brewed coffee and some mochi sweets. Then it's a short walk through an area with many temples to reach our final destination: a nearly-100-year-old Japanese house that's been converted into a cafe.

We'll stop by at around 10 places!
