Description

This tour features the best of what Tokyo has to offer in terms of tradition. We start off at Asakusa, one of Tokyo’s oldest neighbourhoods, still filled with old-style shops, old ladies in kimono and traditional food stalls. We visit the famous Sensoji temple of which some parts are still original since the 17th century. After lunch at a conveyor belt sushi restaurant we board the Sumida river cruise which takes us down the Sumida river, to Hamarikyu park. This former garden of the Shogun’s summer residence has also serviced as a recreational space and hunting ground for the Meiji emperor. Lastly, we will stroll through Tokyo’s ‘underbelly’, Shimbashi, filled with salarimen in suits trying to relax after a hard day’s work. We will also see the inner workings of a ‘pachinko’ parlour, one of Japan’s most popular gambling pastimes. Prices are excluding your own lunch, other food and beverages and your own transportation costs and/or entrance tickets. For more information or to place a booking email me at nicki@tokiotours.com
