Explore Asakusa And Tokyo Culture - Join MATCHA For A Walking Tour!
On this tour, you will learn about how Sensoji Temple was established, and what role it played in local people's lives. We will walk around the grounds while learning about the most historical temple in Japan’s modern metropolis. Participants will be taught how to properly offer a prayer, receive an omikuji (fortune slip), and other traditional Japanese manners.

3. Local Lunch at a restaurant that only locals go

We take you to a local restaurant and you will enjoy Japanese local taste.

4. Venture into Deep Asakusa

We will also visit an interesting neighborhood north of Sensoji Temple that is often left out of the explanations of many guides. Here you will find a plethora of local shops popular in Asakusa. As this neighborhood is close to a geisha district, you may even get a glimpse of geiko, or Japanese performance artists, passing by.

5. Shopping at Kappabashi

Amateurs and professionals frequent Kappabashi, a lively shopping street filled with shops specializing in cooking tools, tableware, and restaurant supplies. You will come across the perfect Japanese cutlery or tableware when you visit! During the tour, many photos will be taken by staff. These will be yours to receive for free, which you can share with friends and add to your memories.
