Travel Guide - Yanaka Ginza

InformationInformation

Yanaka Ginza is a small street market with about 70 shops mainly supplying commodities for local residences. It is crowded with people of both genders young and old, as there is everything from old established shops still standing since the Taisho era (1912 - 1926) to modern sweets shops. Although it is along the JR Yamanote Line, this shopping street in the Yanesen area retains its warm and nostalgic atmosphere of Shitamachi, or lower city of the old working-class district. So while going up and down the street, you may be called with friendly tones to stop and view the wares on offer.
As you walk down the Goten-zaka slope from the west exit of JR Nippori Station, you will come to a set of steps called "Yuyake Dandan (Sunset stairs)" near the gate of Yanaka Ginza. As its name implies, the steps have a beautiful view of sunset.
