As it wasn’t a cherry blossom season, it was very quiet and peaceful. My friend told me that it’s quite safe to walk alone from Nippori Station even after dark. It’s well lit, but that’s unimaginable!

It's a cemetery. It's atmospheric and apparently good at the right time of year for the cherry blossom. Other than that, not much more to say.

On my fifth trip to Tokyo I thought to do something outside the box and headed to Yanaka Cemetery, having only visited Sydney’s Rookwood a week early, to compare. The cemetery is a calm place. Serene, with beautiful trees and stone pathways that you can...More

I enjoyed walking around Yanaka Cemetery and soaking up the local history. It's an interesting, beautiful place. There are lots of cherry trees here & they would be beautiful in late March/early April when in bloom.

This is an impressive cemetary and worth a look even though cemetaries are not normally for tourists. It covers 100,000 square meters and has over 7,000 graves. It also has history as after the Meji Restoration the government wanted to separate Buddhism and Shinto graves...More

The cemetery was respectfully quiet but atmospheric. The guide provided a helpful introduction to the Buddhist family cemetery traditions. Plus it was pleasant walking through the neighbouring streets including the crowded street market.

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.
Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit
a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping
