Yanaka is one of a trio of neighborhoods collectively called Yanesen after their first syllables (Yanaka, Nezu and Sendagi). They are part of the shitamachi or old downtown district of Tokyo. Yanaka has a mid-20th-century vibe uncommon in Tokyo, which was largely destroyed twice in the 20th century by earthquake and war.
