In Tokyo, buses, taxis, and a sizable railroad network meet all your transportation needs. But if you want a unique perspective of Asakusa, consider traveling in a traditional Japanese rickshaw. The picturesque surroundings, amiable drivers, and historical monuments make for a memorable experience.

A Traditional Rickshaw to Explore the Heritage of Japan

The rickshaw ride will transport you to sequestered corners of Asakusa, which used to be one of the most prosperous areas in Tokyo. Your tour guide will be a skilled rickshaw puller dressed in traditional Japanese attire who speaks both English and Japanese. He will whisk you away on an exhilarating journey packed with history, culture, and panoramic vistas.

Walk Through the Red Gates of Kaminari

Located downtown, Asakusa has a traditional ambiance that takes you away from the hustle and bustle of 21st-century Tokyo. The area is rich in religious, vintage, and cultural aspects that attract visitors. Instead of spending your entire time shopping—which is Asakusa's popular pastime—use the tour to soak in some Japanese culture. Stop by the renowned Kaminari Gate, which serves as the entryway to the magnificent Sensoji Temple.

Have your rickshaw tour guide snap pictures of you posing beneath the Kaminarimon Gate's famous giant red lantern. Explore Nakamise Shopping Street and the surrounding alleyways for a wide range of delicious lunch options.
