Tokyo’s Yanaka District

North of Ueno Park, I strolled through the narrow streets of this quiet district having heard it offered a taste of old Tokyo. But the few scattered traditional houses I passed, sadly showed signs of neglect as if they were considered unworthy of repair.

Still a stroll through the large cemetery where the main walkway was lined with trees made this a worthwhile district to enter for a taste of a different Tokyo.
