“A special place for our family”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2012

This is where my ancestors rest. I go here quite often. It is near by Ueno and Ueno park, National Art University, and there are many interesting places to visit nearby and small, but good restautants in the neighbor

“Immaculate peace and quiet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2012

Yanaka Cemetary is beautifully maintained; there's not a weed out of place or a broken grave marker anywhere. It's in a very quiet part of Tokyo, and the cemetary feels quieter still; if you are visiting the museums and parks of Ueno, it can be good to take the train to Nippori-ishi, walk through the cemetary and then head south to Ueno as you'll be able to see some of the smaller shops and domestic parts of Tokyo you might miss if you went straight to the museums. Within the cemetary itself there's nothing that stands out as a particular draw of your attention, but then it is a cemetary first and foremost; labelling notable graves for tourists is probably quite low on their priorities.
