This is an in-depth guided walking tour including lunch and short live music in Asakusa, the heart of old Tokyo. This tour starts at Azumabashi Bridge over Sumida River which has been one of the most important and popular rivers in Tokyo. Actually, the story of Sensoji temple originated in this river 1400 years ago. Then, we move on to the world's well-known Thunder-gate with a giant red lantern hanging under the gate. That is the entrance to the world of Buddhist temple and Shinto shrine. You may be surprised by its friendly and welcoming atmosphere walking on the Nakamise shopping street if you had imagined solemn and stately religious facilities. At noontime, I will take you to the long-established traditional Japanese restaurant for Kaiseki Lunch and live music of Tsugaru-jamisen. Since it is a small restaurant with a limited number of seats and held only two short live concerts at lunchtime a day, it is one of the hardest restaurants to reserve in Asakusa. So, I need at least three days prior to make a reservation to guarantee the seats. The players don't use any electrical devices such as a microphone and I am sure that its deep and passionate melodies will leave you mesmerized. I will explain about the dishes, music and its traditional instrument called shamisen. The tour ends in the restaurant.
I am a national government licensed tour guide specializing in Asakusa, the heart of old Tokyo. This area is one of the most well known and popular tourist destinations and filled with nostalgic Japanese cultures of ordinary people lived in old Tokyo. Before, I had worked as a certified Japanese teacher in Japan and in the US. I learned "teaching language is teaching its culture." So as a tour guide, I would like to introduce not only the fact but also its background stories as much as possible. Having lived in Europe and the US for 18 years with my family, I was deeply touched by how friendly and kind the locals were. I realized how important it was to interact with locals since we were able to enjoy many memorable experiences. These nice experiences made me become a tour guide. I wish my guest unforgettable wonderful memories!
