One of the rare few leftovers from times past, Asakusa is Tokyo's hub for traditional culture. Asakusa is filled with souvenir shops and street food stalls in the famous Nakamise Shopping Street, and is also home to the resident Buddhist temple, beautiful Sensoji. In the back streets of Asakusa you’ll find local makers of artisanal foods and wares, as well as exciting bars and humble restaurants. Asakusa is certainly one of the busiest spots for tourists in Tokyo, it’s the place to get a healthy hit of traditional Japanese culture in one go. To experience the best in traditional culture and delicious Japanese food, join this family-friendly Street Food Tour in Old Town Asakusa for a great day of exploring and eating!
During this Asakusa Food Tour, you’ll visit the stunning Sensoji Temple, where we'll make a wish following a simple Japanese ritual, followed by a delicious Japanese lunch at a local restaurant, hidden in one of Asakusa’s backstreets.
After a tasty (optionally gluten-free or vegan) lunch, you’ll check out famous Tokyo Skytree from a perfect secret viewing spot, as well as Sensoji and the 5-story pagoda, learning about the culture and history of the Asakusa area along the way. You’ll taste some different Japanese snacks, all of which have a long history, produced by small artisanal family-run business, some of which even date back to the 1940s.
Strolling through the Asakusa area, you’ll finish off this family-friendly Street Food Tour in Old Town Asakusa with a delicious dessert. I will also point out some recommended souvenirs which you can bring back home or you can stock up on gluten-free & vegan treats!
