Full description
Cruise the bustling streets of Tokyo in your own private chariot on a fun sightseeing tour of the Asakusa district by rickshaw. Admire the beautiful Asakusa Shrine next to the city's oldest temple, and experience the everyday street life en route to the famous shoe shopping district of Hanakawado. Venture inside Sumida Park, most resplendent in spring when thousands of cherry trees are in bloom. Check out quirky Tanuki-doori, and the adult theaters of the historic Rokku Ward. Take souvenir photos of Hanayashiki, the oldest amusement park in Japan. Ride down Denpoin Street, where little has changed since World War II as you make your way back to the starting point. Book the 2-hour or 3-hour tour options and you will also see the Sensoji Temple, while guests on the 3-hour option can choose a memorial gift of a special Hello Kitty doll or original T-shirt.

The tour was a great experience. Our driver was very well taken care of our well-being. He told us a lot about Tokyo and Asakussa. Also we were allowed to practice with him in a temple and together the rituals before entering the temple. It was a great tour. Thanks to the guide Tyger

Due to problems with our flight it was not possible to do our excursion on the agreed day. We only arrived in Tokyo a day later and had to board right away for our cruise. Our contact person mailed us with the question whether everything was OK with us and that they had missed us at the agreed meeting point. I explained everything about our delayed flight and they offered us to do the excursion (almost a week later). We thought that was really great !! We were enthusiastically awaited on the new date. They were ready with a sign with our name on it. Although it was raining a lot, our guide Yuki was very enthusiastic and cheerful and showed us many beautiful places, in particular a quiet unknown temple in the neighborhood. He explained all the accompanying rituals, it was really very interesting. The best tour we made in Japan. We can therefore heartily recommend this tour.

Despite arriving about 10 minutes late, I was able to experience it quickly. The staff was very kind, took pictures diligently, and told me a lot, so it was really fun :) I recommend it because you can tour various places without walking yourself. I booked the 1-hour course, but I paid an additional fee and proceeded with the 2-hour course, but it was a wonderful experience worth the money. I recommend it~
