0.0/5.0

Walk the local streets in Kameido, guided by the towering Skytree.


There are many hidden and little known locations in Kameido. In this tour you will be taken around some of these spots to visit several Gods, such as the Gods of sport, water and scholarship. One of the highlights of this tour is the view you will see from Kameido Ten Jinja Shrine, of its vibrant red bridge with Japan's tallest building, the Skytree, in the background. If you are up for a walk, the walk towards the Skystree is a good one. The view of the towering skytree drawing closer and closer is fantastic, but there do not seem to be many tours that take tourists on this walk. Come and experience this unusual tour with otomo!
