Kimono-rickshaw tour – new trend in Asakusa, Tokyo

Published on : Tuesday, January 1, 2019

Rickshaw can lift the spirits and become a tool of rediscovering Asakusa’s charms. Tourists dressed in kimono and riding in rickshaws is a prominent aspect of Asakusa’s tourism. English, Chinese, Spanish – a symphony of languages can be heard around the Kaminarimon gate of Sensoji temple.

 

 

Asakusa tourism can be enjoyed to the hilt by strolling in rented kimono, riding rickshaws and munching Japanese food.

 

 

 

Shinichiro Yamaguchi from hotel and restaurant firm Fujita Kanko Inc., devised the ‘Japanese culture experience’ which includes kimono rental and fitting, a ride in a rickshaw and a Japanese lunch.

 

 

 

The tourist visit kimono rental shop Hanaka to chose kimono and obi sashes. Then they ride two-person rickshaw with a retro design intended to evoke the time when Japan was opening up to the West during the Meiji era (1868-1912). Going along the Sumidagawa river, the rickshaw passed by near the Azumabashi bridge with its striking red balustrades, Kaminarimon, and through the alleys around Sensoji.

 

 

 

 

Depending on the time of day, tours can have lunch before or after the rickshaw ride. Tourist can walk around Asakusa in their kimono.

 

 

 

The current trend in travel is experience-based – putting on a kimono, riding on a rickshaw and talking with the driver.
