Tokyo Town Walking (Asakusa & Akihabara)

Discover the real Tokyo, both historical and modern with a local! You will naturally see the contrast between new and old parts of central Tokyo.

We start the tour at Tawaramachi metro station at 10:30am. In the morning, we will visit Kappabashi and stroll through the Kitchen Street selling kitchen goods and plastic food samples that are very real.

We will then have lunch at a traditional restaurant with more than 100 years’ history.

After lunch, let’s try omikuji fortune at the Sensoji Temple in Asakusa and enjoy the atmosphere of downtown Tokyo as we walk through the Nakamise shopping street.

We will then visit Akihabara Electric Town – a town well known for being the center of otaku culture and shops devoted to anime and manga. We will walk through the narrow back streets of Akihabara with its video game shops, karaokes, maid cafes and anime/figure shops. We finish the tour at Akihabara station around 4:30pm.

This tour will be in a small group of up to 6 and will be led by a local guide who will explain the culture and history of each place we visit.
