Tours for Accompanying Persons

Tokyo 1 Day Tour

Sensoji Temple in Asakusa

Sensoji Temple in Asakusa: Sensoji is the oldest and most impressive temple in Tokyo. The main hall was first built in 645 to house a tiny golden statue of Kannon, the goddess of mercy, that had been repeatedly hauled up in fishing nets despite being thrown back into the river. The temple precincts bustle with people praying, buying fortunes, shopping or sightseeing.

At a height of 634 meters, the TOKYO SKYTREE is the tallest tower in the world, and the 2nd -tallest structure in the world after the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. At a height of 350 meters, this gives an impressive panoramic view of the city. The area at the foot of the tower is a brand-new commercial center.


Shinohara Furin Hompo

Edo Furin is the name of the glass wind chimes which have been made since the Edo period (17-19c). As Edo Furins are all hand-made one by one, each Furin has a different sound even though they have the same shape and pattern.

Lake Ashi Excursion Boat

Large excursion boats modeled after medieval European pirate and merchant ships give cruises around beautiful Lake Ashi, a crater lake with a circumference of nearly 18 kilometers. In autumn the deck of an excursion boat is the ideal place from which to savor the flame-tinted leaves of trees along the shoreline and in the surrounding mountains. Teeming with trout and black bass, the lake is a mecca for fishermen. Swimming and boating are also popular. Lake Ashi is also well known for the inverted reflection of Mt. Fuji.
