T03 Asakusa Tour

Must-Visit Tourist Attraction

Tokyo’s Oldest Temple

The Harmonious Blend of Sacredness and Secularity

The Most Touristy Destination with 30 Million Visitors Annually: A Fusion of Tradition and Modernity. This area has a rich history, evolving from a place of faith, centered around Senso-ji Temple, to a vibrant secular hub, attracting people from all walks of life. During the Edo period, people came here to savor both aspects of life. Today, tourists visit with the same anticipation. In this tour, we’ll start from Ueno, take a walk through Kappabashi Kitchenware Town, and venture into the Asakusa district, where we can relish the coexistence of the sacred and the secular.
