Experience Details

Step back in time and discover Tokyo's historic Asakusa district on a private tour! With a knowledgeable English-speaking guide by your side, you’ll feast on authentic Japanese food, take part in a kimono-wearing experience, tour Nakamise Shopping Street, and learn about the area’s rich history and culture. During the Edo period (1603-1868), Asakusa flourished as an entertainment district. The area developed around Sensō-ji and quickly became known for its theaters, teahouses, and kabuki performances, attracting visitors from all walks of life. Your Asakusa adventure begins with a traditional Japanese breakfast: an onigiri (rice ball) meal set. Once you’re fuelled and ready, let the walking tour begin. Your guide is brimming with knowledge about Asakusa's history, culture, and customs, which will eagerly be shared with you during this tour. After an initial stroll of the area, slip into something more special… an authentic Japanese kimono! Asakusa is renowned for its kimono rental shops, where you can choose from various vibrant and elegant garments. Slip into the graceful layers of a kimono, tie an obi around your waist, and complete the look with traditional accessories. You'll feel like you've traveled back in time as you stroll through the streets of Asakusa, capturing unforgettable photos and memories along the way. Wander to Nakamise Shopping Street–a lively pedestrian avenue lined with countless shops–then end with an authentic Japanese lunch at Gonpachi Asakusa or a Japanese Izakaya.
