InformationInformation

Yanaka Cemetery was founded in 1874 in the place where Yanaka Tenno-ji Temple was originally located. The ruins of Yanaka Tenno-ji's Five-Storied Pagoda, which is famous for Koda Rohan's novel, still can be seen here.
Many celebrities, such as Yokoyama Taikan, Tokugawa Yoshinobu, Hasegawa Kazuo, and Hatoyama Ichiro, are buried in the cemetery. The place is also known as a sight for cherry blossoms in the spring.
