Full description
Meet your certified guide at the Azumabashi bridge to begin the tour, observing the Tokyo Sky Tree and Sumida river. Make your way to the nearby Culture Center to get a preview of the tour route by seeing Asakusa from high up in the building. Visit the ancient Buddhist Sensoji Temple, one of Tokyo's essential sightseeing spots. Learn about the history and secrets of this ancient place, while participating in the temple- and shrine-visiting rituals that Japanese people know. Afterward, dive into the Rokku area, Asakusa's bustling entertainment district. Stroll through streets learning about the complex district of continual novelty and quaint nostalgia. After discovering Asakusa's charm, make your way to three distinct but typical izakaya restaurants. On average, we provide 3 to 4 drinks and 3 to 4 dishes, which is enough for a full dinner meal. During the experience, you have the opportunity to savor traditional dishes and drinks whilst learning about the culture and history which triggered their creation. You'll also discover the depth of sake in its varieties, flavors, and production processes which have been refined over centuries.

Star rating:

Tour of temple area, as well as visiting an izakaya, sake bar, and Tokyo's oldest bar. This tour would be better if it spent less time in the temple area and more time sharing culture/history through Japanese food.
