YANAKA, TOKYO, JAPAN -APRIL 2017: One of the best, and quietest, place to see the cherry blossom away from the crowds in Tokyo is Yanaka, home to a large cemetery, and 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. A walking distance from Hamami crazy Ueno Park, Yanaka, offers a sightseeing opportunity different from the metropolitan city feel of other parts of Tokyo (photo Gilles Mingasson).
