Only have half a day in Tokyo? Don’t worry, you can see and get what you exactly want in Tokyo in this tour. We will visit Asakusa, the most popular tourist sight in Tokyo, to see the Senso-ji temple and Nakamise-dori shopping street. There are several perfect photo spots, many things to try and eat, and wish for your luck in the authentic Japanese style.

Afterwards, we will visit Kappabashi where you can get all the unique kitchen utensils such as chopsticks, knives and bento boxes,and feel the neat works by the craftsman in the area.

These goods are also very popular as a souvenir for your friends and families.

Also, as an option, you can try the plastic food sample making here, which magically looks real. If you want to try this, please mention to the guide so that they can book the session for you (*the fee for the activity is NOT included in the tour fee).

 

 


Itinerary


In Asakusa which is visited by more than half of the overseas tourists, you will encounter Tokyo’s oldest temple Sensoji Temple as well as the Kaminarimon (Thunder Gate), which is the outermost gate of Sensoji Temple as well as the street lined with old-school shops that lead to the inner precincts of the shrine. Many of the stores offer services in English.

Kappabashi is the street located between Ueno and Asakusa with shops dealing in cookware. With over 100 years of history, customers from all over Japan, whether they be amateur cooks or professional chefs, come to the street. And even in recent years, it has become a hit with the overseas tourists as well.
