Hakusan and Nezu are especially charming locations in Bunkyo ward with two large shrines and many shops that exude the friendly atmosphere of a traditional working-class neighborhood, also known as “shitamachi”.
This area retains the charm of Tokyo’s shitamachi; here you can enjoy shopping areas unchanged over time and eat buns (dango) from a long-standing Japanese confectionary store. You can experience Japanese tradition and culture at Nezu Shrine, which is said to have been established over 1900 years ago in Sendagi by Yamato Takeru no Mikoto.
Hakusan Shrine is said to have been transferred from Kagaichi no miya Shirayama Shrine in the Tenryaku Era (947-957); while coming to visit, please enjoy green tea at a tea shop in the Hakusan shopping area!
