Immerse yourself in Tokyo's ancient history with this fantastic guided tour of the enchanting Asakusa district. You'll discover a corner of the city filled with ancient temples and Japanese tradition.
Asakusa Guided Tour
We'll meet up at the designated time next to the Asakusa Station (Ginza line) to begin a walking tour of Asakusa, one of Tokyo's most traditional and historic neighborhoods.
During the tour of Asakusa, we'll immerse ourselves in its magical atmosphere, a blend of modernity and tradition, and visit the Sensō-ji Temple, the oldest and most important Buddhist shrine in the capital of Japan.
After visiting the temple, we'll head over to Nakamise Street with its more than 300 years of history, and Kappabashi Street, an avenue that will catch your attention with its many stalls full of kitchen utensils.
From here, we'll walk to the Kaminarimon Gate, whose name in English means Gate of Thunder. You can have your photo taken with the monument before we say our goodbyes after a total of 2 hours.

Frequently asked questions
Q - Why do this activity with Civitatis?
A - All Civitatis activities go through a selection process. Within our listings, you won't find two equal activities offered by different providers: we simply take the company with the best reviews and quality and stick with that one. If our users start leaving negative reviews on an activity, we understand that something is off, and we contact the provider to establish a solution. If this situation persists, we look for another company that responds to our commitment to excellence. That's why doing an activity with Civitatis means getting it right every time and ending up satisfied with the service.
