Asakusa has also long been developed as the town of show business. In the Edo(now Tokyo) period(1603-1867), several kabuki and puppet theaters opened there and it became the most popular amusement area in Edo. Today, there are still various types of theaters including popular one, vaudeville ones and even a strip club. Kabuki is sometimes performed in Asakusa Public Hall. In my tour,  A one day tour for the first time visitors to Tokyo , Asakusa is a main destination. If you join my this tour, you may see such theaters. Why don't you join me?

As I am a 60 year old man, born in Tokyo, graduated from a university in Tokyo and worked for a leading paper wholesale company at its headquarters for 35 years, I am an Edokko or a native Tokyoite. I am familiar with various interesting places in Tokyo and the Kanto area such as historic spots, scenic beauty, entertainment, restaurants and so on. Although I basically provide several regular walking tours for visitors from abroad, I am willing to arrange your tour plan in a customized way according to your interest. If I receive your inquiry, I am ready to hear your interest and what you want to experience, and discuss your plan with you in advance.
