Explore old down town area and absorb good old days in Tokyo!


Fukagawa is located east side of Tokyo and well known as one of the typical old downtown areas. The people there are very proud of this town, so they are eager to introduce everything to visitors!

You may feel something of Japan's good old days during this tour. We will visit Fukagawa Fodoudou (a temple), Tomioka Hachimangu (a shrine), Kiyosumi Gardens (a Japanese garden), Edo Fukagawa museum, and some other attractive places. You can also enjoy a famous local food "Fukagawa meshi", rice mixed with cooked clams if you wish. At the temple, you can observe the fire ritual and can join the special blessing around the end of the service.
