The Yanaka district with its temples and hills still retains something of the old “shitamachi” days. The main venue of the Yanaka Festival is “Hatsune no Mori”. There are music performances by local school kids, hero shows, street performers, food stalls, and a market with products not only from Yanaka but also from friendship and sister cities. Fun events also take place at the other venues: Yanaka Elementary School, the Former Yoshida-ya Liquor Store, Yanaka Pagoda Site Kodomo Hiroba, and Okakura Tenshin Kinen Park. Other activities include a stamp rally in the Yanaka district. This is a popular event for families.
