Tokyo: Asakusa Sightseeing Tour by Rickshaw

1. Tokyo: Asakusa Sightseeing Tour by Rickshaw

Cruise the bustling streets of Tokyo in your own private chariot on a fun sightseeing tour of the Asakusa district by rickshaw. Admire the beautiful Asakusa Shrine next to the city's oldest temple, and experience the everyday street life en route to the famous shoe shopping district of Hanakawado. Venture inside Sumida Park, most resplendent in spring when thousands of cherry trees are in bloom. Check out quirky Tanuki-doori, and the adult theaters of the historic Rokku Ward. Take souvenir photos of Hanayashiki, the oldest amusement park in Japan. Ride down Denpoin Street, where little has changed since World War II as you make your way back to the starting point. Book the 2-hour or 3-hour tour options and you will also see the Sensoji Temple, while guests on the 3-hour option can choose a memorial gift of a special Hello Kitty doll or original T-shirt.

Asakusa: 2-Hour Photographic Walking Tour

2. Asakusa: 2-Hour Photographic Walking Tour

Your meeting point is in front of the Asakusa tourist information center. Following a brief introduction you will head up to the top floor of the Information Center for wonderful views, overlooking the area in which your tour will take place. Your tour will then continue to the Kaminarimon Gate, also known as Thunder Gate, where you can take a few pictures before continuing onto Nakamise Street. Nakamise is an old yet still hustling-and-bustling shopping street in Japan. Over 90 shops and food stalls are lined up between the gate and the main hall of the temple. On the way to the temple you can stop and look for souvenirs, and can also opt to try some local delicacies. At the Sensoji Temple your guide will explain and demonstrate the proper way to behave and pray at both a Buddhist Temple as well as a Shinto Shrine. You can enjoy the old architectural style by viewing the 5-story pagoda and the Hozomon Gate, and following a short walk to the rather quiet and serene Sumider Park by the Sumida River, you will see more modern architectural styles. As you return to the tour starting point, your tour will come to an end.

The tour was a great experience. Our driver was very well taken care of our well-being. He told us a lot about Tokyo and Asakussa. Also we were allowed to practice with him in a temple and together the rituals before entering the temple. It was a great tour. Thanks to the guide Tyger

Absolutely amazing experience! We got to see so much this was in such a short period of time. Kazouki was our driver and he had us laughing and entertained the whole time. YOLO Kazouki
