YANAKA, TOKYO, JAPAN -APRIL 2017: Cherry blossom in Yanaka, one of the few districts in Tokyo where the shitamachi atmosphere, an old town ambience reminiscent of Tokyo from past decades, still survives. Throughout the district, there is an air of nostalgia and a rustic charm. It is within walking distance of Ueno Park, and offers a sightseeing opportunity different from the metropolitan city feel of other parts of Tokyo (photo Gilles Mingasson).
