Are you looking for a slightly unusual tour on your travels to Japan? On this tour, you will visit a grand temple and an old shopping street, but this not-your-typical-tour does not stop here. After visiting these traditionally Japanese locations, your tour guide will take you to locations that resemble some other countries in Asia, including India, China and Hong Kong. Visit an Indian style temple, a Chinese style garden, a game center that realistically resembles a former Hong Kong slum, and an observation deck where you can look right out across Tokyo. The industrial area and the skyscraper district make Tokyo look like a futuristic city. Choose this tour to see Japan and much more!
・Feel as though you have travelled around Asia, by visiting an Indian style temple, a Chinese style garden, a themed game center of the former Kowloon Walled City in Hong Kong, and an observation deck where you can see futuristic views of Tokyo!
・Although the locations you visit on this tour may seem non-Japanese, you will find that at each location you visit, you will experience Japanese culture, such as praying at a temple, eating Japanese confectionery and playing crane games in a game center.
・When you walk through the old shopping arcade, make sure you catch the amazing performance of the traditional candy cutters. They are like percussionists!
・Kawasaki Daishi Nakamise-dori Street: Walk through the shopping street that leads up to Kawasaki Daishi Temple, and experience the old Japanese shopping culture. It is just as fun as the shopping street at Sensoji Temple in Asakusa.
・Kawasaki Daishi Heikenji Temple: This temple is famous for warding off bad spirits. You can also visit 88 temples within the grounds of this temple, something we recommend you do!
・Kawasaki Daishi Prayer Hall for Safe Driving: This temple resembles Indian architecture. If you have a driving licence, pray here for safe driving!
・Shinshu-en: The detail of this Chinese landscape garden is so precise that it has made it famous among costume players as a great place to take photos with a Chinese backdrop.
・Kawasaki Marien: Enjoy a panoramic view of Tokyo from the observation deck. The night view of the industrial area that you can see from this observation deck has been certified as one of the Japan Night Scape Heritage Sites.
・Kawasaki Warehouse: Realistically resembling the former Kowloon Walled City in Hong Kong, this warehouse is an unusual looking game center.
