Places to visit in Nezu

Nezu is part of Yanesen area (which includes Yanaka, Nezu, Sendagi) in Tokyo’s authentic north-east corner. Nezu is foremost a residential neighbourhood with one major shinto shrine within its borders. Traditional shops and traditional streets is what you will find here, but all in a more contemporary setting without too many tourists.

This article lists my recommendations in Nezu. Please note the following sights are only in Nezu. Your visit should also include neighbouring Yanaka and Sendagi (together called Yanesen). Right at the south of Nezu is Tokyo University with its Yayoi Campus and Hongo Campus, also worth a visit.
