Yanaka One-Day Trip: Off to nostalgic Japanese streets for food, art, crafts, old-fashioned architectures, show, history and much more.

 

Our third day trip was taken in Yanaka, where we could enjoy its fine arts, street food and temples. Due to the changeable weather, it was cloudy at first, snowy later and finally became sunny in the end. It seemed that everyone had fun overall.

 

One of the happiest news was that the number of 21 participants of our day trip hit new record high. And also we found the number to be the allowable limit. Even though we focused more on our explanations of the spots this time than the last 2 events, it turned out some participants from other countries required us deeper and higher quality of explanations. Those requirements should have caused for their curiosity about Japanese tradition and history, thus we could take them positively.

 

Leaving at our first meeting point, we first enjoyed street food in Yanaka Ginza Street. The participants seemed to love croquettes best. After visiting Yanaka coffee, we watched the puppet show. It was pleasure that one of the participants enjoyed it, and he would plan to show his family the theater. So many fine arts including Alan West gallery made our trip more enjoyable. We broke up in the bus stop near the Keisei Ueno station, and some participants had a fun teatime at last.

 

We wish we could work explanations out much more next time!
Thank you for coming out on an early Sunday morning. A great thank-you to the all participants! Hope we have all of you at next events!
