About Yanaka:

Yanaka is a temple town – it has as many as 60 ~ 70 temples and their cemeteries.

The neighborhood is rich in history and offers a glimpse into the more traditional Japanese streetscapes that are becoming more and more difficult to find in an urban center like Tokyo. Today you will find several of the old shophouses and homes have been converted into cafes and galleries.

The area was once just forest until the Kaneji Temple was built here 1625. In the following years, many sub-temples were built around Kaneji. As the temples increased in number, so too did worshippers. Many shophouses sprung up to cater to the growing number of visitors. The neighborhood managed to escape from serious damage in the 1923 Great Kanto earthquake and the WWII air raids, but did suffer some damage in the Battle of Ueno that took place during the Boshin War in 1868. The one-day battle took place at the Tokugawa family’s Kaneji Temple, just 400 meters east of this block of land. Over 300 of the fighters died in the battle and a thousand homes were burnt.
