This is a 3-story reinforced concrete house in the traditional and historic Yanaka district in Tokyo. The home is directly across the street from the Scai The Bathhouse art gallery.

The home includes a bedroom, family bathroom and garage on the ground floor, a living area, kitchen and bedroom on the second floor, and two more bedrooms on the third floor. The internal staircase also leads up to the flat rooftop which offers views over the mostly low-rise neighborhood.

History of the Yanaka neighborhood:

Yanaka is a temple town – it has as many as 60 ~ 70 temples and their cemeteries.

The neighborhood is rich in history and offers a glimpse into the more traditional Japanese streetscapes that are becoming more and more difficult to find in an urban center like Tokyo. Today you will find several of the old surviving shophouses and homes have been converted into cafes and galleries. Yanaka is also known for its large feline population and has earned the nickname of Cat Town. Many shops and cafes are cat-themed, while cats may often be seen roaming the streets and parks.

The area was once just forest until the Kaneji Temple was built here in 1625. In the following years, many sub-temples were built around Kaneji. As the temples increased in number, so too did worshippers. Many shophouses sprung up to cater to the growing number of visitors. The neighborhood managed to escape from serious damage in the 1923 Great Kanto earthquake and the WWII air raids, but did suffer some damage in the Battle of Ueno that took place during the Boshin War in 1868. The one-day battle took place at the Tokugawa family’s Kaneji Temple. Over 300 of the fighters died in the battle and a thousand homes were burnt.
