Asakusa Rickshaw Tour with Ebisuya

After enjoying a tasty eel lunch, we took the subway to Asakusa. Asakusa is a district in Taitō, Tokyo. We saw several rickshaws being pulled around the streets. We asked where the starting point was and decided to do Ebisuya’s one hour Rickshaw Tour of Asakusa.

Our knowledgeable guide was fantastic and had to be a amazing shape! He pulled us along the lovely streets of Asakusa pointing things out and providing lots of information.

The hour flew by. We were dropped off and given a couple goodies to keep as souvenirs. We really enjoyed riding the rickshaw. If you’re in the neighborhood, it’s a really nice and unique way to see it. We decided to try some matcha snacks and stop by a couple stores our guide pointed out to us before exploring more of Asakusa.
