Climb aboard a traditional Japanese rickshaw for an unforgettable view of the Asakusa district in Tokyo. Your knowledgeable guide will steer you to some of Tokyo’s many iconic sites, districts, temples and shrines while illuminating the history behind them all. Enjoy scenic views of maple and cherry trees, gardens, soaring skyscrapers, and traditional businesses. If you’re looking for a carefree, customizable way to see Tokyo, this is it.

Apart from the above courses, we have other special course for guests who really want to get away from the city.
If you have already seen the crowds and buildings in Tokyo, let’s get away from that and enjoy the view across the sumida river and go into places where you can refresh your mind under the quiet trees and monument of Asahi beer headquarter! We shall go across the bridge to the peaceful area of sumida park and Ushijima shrine where you can enjoy the Japanese garden park and lucky fortune cow shrine.

A fun ride around Asakusa
Robert H, 02-12-2022
My tour leader arranged for me to get an English-speaking driver. I forgot his name but he spoke nearly perfect English. And with his nineteen years' experience, he was very knowledgeable.
It was so nice to go around without walking. It was a nice break
This had to be one of the highlights of Asakusa.
Great rickshaw ride

Ebisuya Asakusa rickshaw tour was recommended by the kimono rental shop. Unexpectedly, I had a super cute, helpful & cheerful young man for this tour, and that added more fun!

With tight kimono outfit, it was not easy to cover vast area on foot, so this was the perfect way for me to run around!

He answered all my questions in courteous and friendly manner, and his information also helped me of the orientation of all the important areas that I didn't want to miss!
