Description

Explore the local streets of Tokyo's Asakusa district like a ninja warrior on this fun 4-hour guided tour. Visit such landmarks as the Kaminarimon Gate and the Kappabashi Market. Visit a handmade soap shop, try your hand at cooking, and eat traditional Japanese cuisine, all while dressed as a ninja.

Meet your guide in Tokyo's Asakusa district  at 11am and get ready for your 4-hour tour exploring the streets like a ninja. Get dressed up in your ninja costume — advise the local tour operator of sizes beforehand — and hit the streets to see Asakusa's top sightseeing spots.

Try out some ninja moves by the Kaminarimon ("Thunder Gate"), the outer of the two large entrances leading to the Senso-ji temple. The gate, with its lantern and statues, is perfect spot for a few photos while dressed in your ninja garb. Head down Nakamise Dori and check out one of the oldest shopping streets in Japan. There are numerous stores along Nakamise Dori, about 50 on the east side and 30 on the west side, all of them of historical interest. Along the way, sample tsukudani, a preserved food boiled in soy sauce, and pop in to the ninja store for some souvenirs.

After you have spent some time touring the local streets, try your hand at cooking a traditional Japanese dish for lunch. Okonomiyaki is a savory Japanese pancake that consists of batter and cabbage and is perfect for refueling active ninjas. After lunch, stop in to one of Tokyo's many purikura booths for fun photos, which you can edit and illustrate before receiving a sticker print-out. End your ninja adventure by snacking on dagashi, traditional Japanese sweets, before saying goodbye.
