LOCATION

文化の“際”を楽しむ町 谷中

EDGY TOWN YANAKA

EDGY TOWN YANAKA

谷中には魅力的な歴史と、複雑な文化の交わりがありました。
寛永寺を発端とする寺町文化が栄えた一方で、
根津神社の周辺には今は無き巨大遊郭の記憶が残る。
そして、江戸の大火、関東大震災、
第二次世界大戦の戦火を免れたことで、
様々な時代の建築が立ち並び、
南には東京大学と上野恩寵公園という学問の砦があり、
多くの文学家がここで作品を残しました。

複雑な文化的な“際”が入り乱れた時代の記憶と、
それらを受け入れ、古きを知り新しきを共有する町、
それが谷中です。

寺町に囲まれた美しい街並みの深層にある
複雑かつ色濃い文化の衝突を、ぜひ一度体感してください。

Yanaka has a fascinating history and a complex cultural collision. While the temple town culture originated from Kan'ei-ji Temple flourished, memories of the now-defunct huge ”yukaku” red-light district around Nezu Shrine remain. And a mixed culture of history in which it survived the Fire of Edo, the Great Kantō earthquake, and the fires of World War II. To the south lies the University of Tokyo and Ueno Onshi Park, both as an academic sanctuary.

Yanaka is a town that has memories of a time when complex cultural ""boundaries"" had been blurry and that embraces those memories and knows the old and shares the new.

We encourage you to experience closely the complex and richly colored cultural collision that lies deep within the beautiful streetscape of the town with temples.
