At your hotel

Asakusa is a district located in the Northeastern part of Tokyo, It's famous for its historical and cultural significance. Key attractions in Asakusa include Senso-ji, Tokyo's oldest Buddhist temple, and the iconic Kaminarimon Gate with a massive red lantern. Visitors often enjoy Nakamise-dori, a bustling shopping street leading to the temple, where you can find various traditional snacks and souvenirs. Asakusa offers a glimpse into Tokyo's past while also being a vibrant part of modern city life.
"Yanesen" is a collective term for three neighborhoods in Tokyo, Yanaka, Nezu, and Sendagi. These areas are known for their historic and nostalgic atmosphere, with preserved traditional Japanese architecture, narrow streets, and numerous temples and shrines. Yanaka, in particular, is famous for its old-fashioned charm and is a popular destination for visitors seeking a glimpse of Tokyo's past. Nezu Shrine is another highlight,. Its main sanctuary was built about 300 years ago by the Tokugawa shogunate. Its buildings are beautiful and located in quiet surroundings. The Red Torii tunnel is a serene and picturesque part of the shrine..
If you take enough time to walk around whole "Yanesen", it takes around two hours. If it is preferable, can adjust itinerary
(e.g., skip or shorten imperial palace eastern gardens, etc.)
Kagurazaka is a district located in Tokyo known for its unique blend of traditional Japanese charm and modern influences. This area is famous for its picturesque cobblestone streets, lined with a variety of restaurants, cafes, and historic buildings. Kagurazaka offers a delightful mix of cultural experiences, making it a popular destination for both locals and tourists.
This tour provides a dinner at a nice Japanese traditional restaurant. This should be an unforgettable memory in your trip to Japan.
