Known as one of Tokyo’s most traditional districts, Asakusa is the place to go for souvenirs and a healthy dose of Japanese culture. Sensoji, Tokyo’s biggest Buddhist temple, lies next to the busy shopping street of Nakamise Dori, together making Asakusa one of the most visited tourist attractions in the city. Take a different path and fully immerse yourself in Japanese culture and delicious foods during this Asakusa Onsen Experience and Food Tour! This tour is an opportunity to literally submerge yourself in some cleansing hot spring water, as an onsen is a traditional Japanese hot spring bath!
The first stop on this Asakusa Onsen Experience and Food Tour is, of course, a traditional Japanese onsen. This tour is perfect for people who have always wanted to try bathing in an onsen but didn’t know where to go or how. You’ll learn about the legacy of flowing water and onsen in Japan, one of the country’s greatest cultural practices, as well as all you need to know about the proper bathing etiquette. Relax and unwind, let your skin be nourished by minerals in the water and your soul be cleansed in this wonderful bathing experience.
After a hot, refreshing bath, you’ll need some delicious Japanese food to fill you up! The food tour part begins here with a first stop where you can grill your own yakiniku (Japanese barbeque), then take a detour via some local shops and old town markets, followed by a tummy top-up of crispy tempura. Next, you’ll taste some takoyaki (octopus balls), a street food snack that originates from Osaka. And finally, for dessert, you’ll eat some Japanese traditional sweets to round out a relaxing day. Immerse yourself in Japanese culture with this Asakusa onsen experience, followed by a local food tour of the Asakusa area.
