Full description
1) After having an in-depth Asakusa history tour, we will take you to a Japanese restaurant for live performance of traditional Japanese musical instruments over dinner. Since it is a small restaurant with a limited number of seats, the performance is presented just in front of you. Enjoy the powerful but adroit performance in close proximity to the musicians. 2) And of course, the tour preceding the visit to the restaurant is one of a kind; an in-depth history tour in Asakusa. 3) If the group size is 3 or more, we will use an earphone guide system which enables you to clearly listen to the guide from a distance.
Includes
  • Dinner in the restaurant
  • Live music performance by shamisen, drum, etc.
  • Local English-speaking certified expert guide
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off

I had a wonderful time on this tour! For starters, the company had to shift the specifics of the tour due to the previous restaurant closing due to COVID, and they dealt with all of those logistics and worked with me to find a new date that worked for me. The tour guide, Yoko, is very knowledgeable and kind, giving an overview of the history of Asakusa and answering a variety of other questions I had about the area. She was also willing to adjust the tour somewhat based on my interests, which was great, and happily helped take some photos and sent them to me afterward. Then the dinner at the restaurant was delicious and the Shamisen performance was absolutely incredible. Honestly had a great time and would readily recommend this tour for folks interested in getting to know Asakusa and some Japanese history.

Our guide was very charming and knowledgeable. He had a very clear voice and spoke excellent English. He made the effort to show us interesting shops, such as a wood block engraving studio, which we would have missed without him.
