Experience Details
Asakusa is rich in tradition and history, a bubble of Japanese culture that marks a stark contrast to the neon lights and skyscrapers found towering in city centers of Tokyo. For all its shops selling traditional crafts and neighboring street food stalls, Nakamise Shopping Street runs through the heart of Asakusa, alive and exciting, while the ancient Buddhist temple of Sensoji lies not far beyond. Asakusa is also home to the first and oldest amusement park in Japan, Hanayashiki, as well as a number of casual izakayas (Japanese-style pubs) and humble, locally-run restaurants. Discover Asakusa through food and learn about its history and culture while you eat during this fantastic family-friendly Asakusa Food Tour! During this Asakusa Food Tour, you’ll wander down Nakamise Dori, the traditional shopping street in Asakusa which serves as one of the busiest areas in Tokyo, perfect for street food and souvenirs. Along the route to the majestic Sensoji Temple, you’ll taste snacks and street foods as you go and learn about the local history of Asakusa and appropriate cultural etiquette when visiting temples in Japan. Next, you’ll stroll down to Kappabashi, Tokyo’s famous kitchen street with all kinds of Japanese tools and cooking utensils. It’s perfect for all your kitchen needs, whether it be the finest knives or a deal on some beautifully-designed chopsticks, your guide can recommend the best places depending on what you want to buy. As a final stop, you’ll eat some delicious monjayaki on Hoppy Street at a local restaurant down in the backstreets of Asakusa. It’s a famous savory pancake dish from the Kanto region that your guide will teach you how to expertly grill yourself!
