We wandered through the very well kept cemetery enjoying the cherry blossoms and small temples. It's just off the Nippori Station and is part of a traditional area in Tokyo.

The road from and to the JR Nippori station is lined on both sides by delightful cherry trees in full bloom during spring when we were there. The best thing is that the crowds of the nearby Ueno park are thankfully missing. You will be...More

A stroll through this place may land you back on earth. The place is packed with tomes and grave stones in varying shapes and sizes. It is a stark contrast to how you see a more western cemetary. You will even find families with kids...More

An interesting place to wander through en route to the old Yanaka area of Tokyo - it's one of Tokyo's most prestigious cemeteries. Interesting to see how the Japanese do death- I've never seen a block of convenient toilets in an English cemetery!

This beautiful cemetary in peaceful Yanaka is a jewel. We even met school children in a playground in the middle of this cemetary, supervised by their mistress. The grave of some famous japanese warriors (Tokugawa shoguns) or writers are hard to find because no indication...More

Good place for a stop and learn. See how this traditional Japanese cemetery differs from what Westerners are use to.

The cemetery, and surrounding shrines and temples, is a very peaceful and tranquil spot in an otherwise busy metropolis.

Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.

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
