What you'll do
This experience is unique way of enjoying one of the most famous spot "Tokyo Skytree" from various point of view as well as off the beaton track of Tokyo. We'll have a nice, pleasant walk along the famous beautiful river called Sumida River. Enjoying nice view of Skytree from the river, we visit one of the most famous traditional shrines, known as the birthplace of the maneki-neko, a cat figurine believed to bring happiness to your life, holding up a paw and bringing luck. There are several very nice locations in the shrine to take photos. I will also explain the proper manners for visiting a shrine in Japan. On the way to the station, we will grab a traditional Japanese sweet called Taiyaki pancake as a street snack. Then we take a local train to visit Skytree. We will enjoy dynamic, fantastic view from very bottom and from nearly top of the tower. You will enjoy different views of the tower and of Tokyo! Then we take a seat in the restaurant located in one of the highest spot in Tokyo and enjoy locally drafted Japanese beer. (Non alcohol drinks and juice also available.) Last fun part is to select your favorite design of postcards and stamps, and write and send it to your friend, family or yourself. Itwill be sent with a unique limited Skytree stamp on it and brings lots of memory to share!!
As I love to make people happy and smile, I've always worked in businesses offering hospitality and used to work as a cabin crew in the past. I've been offering the experience tour since 2017 in this area, Asakusa. I was born and raised in this area, and love this unique part of area in Tokyo where both of historical and modern Japan exist. I would be thrilled to share off the beaten path which allow you to experience only with local professional guide!
