A stroll through Yanaka Ginza

I've returned from Tokyo yesterday.

Once of them most pleasant experiences I had was visiting the Yanaka Ginza Shopping District 谷中銀座商店街 after having afternoon tea with a friend. The street made me feel as if i were transported to the Edo period, as if I were worlds away from hypermodern areas of Shinjuku and Shinuya.

It was my first time there. That's the beauty of Tokyo, I have lived there for 5 years, yet there's always something new to discover.

I'm also going to share some photos from its official Facebook page. Mostly festive photos of New Year celebration at Yanaka Ginza.







It also looks really cool during those summer festivals in August.
