Last week I went to Yanaka with lovely Ros and Kat, Yanaka is a really charming little neighbourhood near Ueno I can't believe it myself but I finally went there for the first time in my life (and yes I am from Tokyo!)!. I totally fell in love with this area, it's my new favourite neighbourhood now!
I got there early for our meeting time so I wondered around the sakura filled Yanaka Cemetery on my own and explored this absolutely gorgeous surrondings!! I LOVE YANAKA SO MUCH!!
 I will post about our fun afternoon from Yanaka in the next post :)

    1. Yanaka was so pretty especially because of sakura, but even without sakura it's a lovely area!

    1. We all love cherry blossoms in Japan, what makes it so special is that they only last for a short time ;)

  5. Oh I used to live in Machiya so the area was just a few train stops away. I'm missing it now reading your words. Did you meet any cats along the way? They are so many of them.
