Description

"In this tour, you will visit Historic Asakusa Area and Tokyo Tower. Asakusa is the center of Tokyo's shitamachi (literally ""low city""), one of Tokyo's districts, where an atmosphere of the Tokyo of past decades survives. Asakusa's main attraction is Sensoji, a very popular Buddhist temple, built in the 7th century. The temple is approached via the Nakamise, a shopping street that has been providing temple visitors with a variety of traditional, local snacks and tourist souvenirs for centuries. Asakusa can easily be explored on foot. Tokyo Tower is a communications and observation tower located in the Shiba-koen district of Minato,Tokyo, Japan. At 333 metres (1,093 ft), it is the second-tallest structure in Japan. The structure is an Eiffel Tower-inspired lattice tower that is painted white and international orange to comply with air safety regulations."
