OVERVIEW

A relaxing walk through Tokyo’s easternmost neighborhoods. Savor the old-fashioned “shitamachi” flair and the venerable temples and shrines.

HIGHLIGHTS

Take a walk in one of the most historic neighborhoods of Tokyo, visiting:

  • Senso-Ji, the most important Buddhist temple in the town
  • Nakamise-dori, a street filled with history
  • The lively hoppy street, cramped with izakayas
  • Kappabashi, the renowned tool street, selling goods for restaurants
  • Explore the area around Ueno, walking through
  • Ameyoko, one of the most colorful markets in Tokyo

DESCRIPTION

Visit Tokyo’s most famous temple, the brightly colored Asakusa Kannon Temple, situated in the historical Asakusa district.
The Buddhist temple, with its five-story pagoda, is one of the most ancient in the city, been established back in the 7th century.
Located just outside the temple is the quaint Nakamise shopping area, a 200-meter street filled with charming shops selling traditional Japanese souvenirs and snacks. All around the temples busy shopping streets and old school restaurants make the area very pleasant to explore.
Not far away from the temple, we reach two of the most enchanting streets of Tokyo: Kappabashi and Ameyoko.
The first one, named after a Japanese water demon, is specialized in selling everything needed by restaurants.
Ameyoko, on the other side, is a market area born after World War Two as a black market selling also imported goods (mostly from the US ) hence the name recalling America.
Start the visit outside Asakusa Station on the Ginza line and reach the famous Kaminarimon, the access gate to the beloved Senso-Ji temple.
Pass through the colorful Nakamise-dori and, after visiting the main hall of the temple, stroll through the neighborhood.
Move to the Kappabashi and end the tour in Ameyoko market in Ueno.
