What we’ll do

What else you should know

This is a walking tour, so wear sensible shoes and bring a bottle of water if you like. There will be brief rest stops. Let us know if you have any special requirements, e.g. dietary, accessibility.

What I’ll provide

Omikuji (fortune paper)
A 'ticket' to your future...? Anyway, we'll give you a coin so you can enjoy the process of drawing your Japanese fortune.
Illustrated maps/booklets
You'll even be able to guide yourself to special Asakusa locations beyond the tour, if you have extra time afterwards.
Japanese sweet snacks
A number of Japanese sweet (but not too sweet) snacks, e.g. melon pan, ice cream, and hanami dango — but it's flexible.

What to bring

Bottle of water/tea (however, there are vending machines along the way, too)
