Full description
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.
