This street is just packed with great things to see, snack on and buy. It's off-the-beaten-track for tourists, which makes it all the more fun. Sit down at the small bar at the side of the street with a cup of sake and a few...More

Since it became a touristy street, new shops popped up among old standing shops. When we strolled along the short street, we could enjoy the atmosphere of downtown Tokyo.

I love the feeling of walking along a friendly neighborhood and the delicious streetfood along the way. Seeing locals having snacks and beer in crate boxes as table and chairs. Some elderly playing traditional game of tops and teaching passerby who wants to learn how...More

Quaint street serving the local population of Yanaka and a few touristy shops. You will see a lot of locals doing their shopping and on the Saturday we were there, they had a demonstration of children playing drums. Many crowded restaurants with long lines waiting...More

Yanaka is a nice neighbourhood, I am not a fan off the street just down the stairs which is way to touristic and extremely expensive. All these things is possible to buy much cheaper at other places in Tokyo. It’s a nice area to stroll...More

If you prefer localise experience instead of the usual shopping malls found in city, you may like to go to Yanaka Ginza Shopping Street and spend 1 to 2 hours to explore the area and enjoy the stuff and food during the slow walk.

A nice small shopping street without the busloads of tourist. Get a feel of how the locals go about with their daily lives. Food are nice and localized. Spend a hour or so just to stroll down this street.
