I had a wonderful time on this tour! For starters, the company had to shift the specifics of the tour due to the previous restaurant closing due to COVID, and they dealt with all of those logistics and worked with me to find a new date that worked for me. The tour guide, Yoko, is very knowledgeable and kind, giving an overview of the history of Asakusa and answering a variety of other questions I had about the area. She was also willing to adjust the tour somewhat based on my interests, which was great, and happily helped take some photos and sent them to me afterward. Then the dinner at the restaurant was delicious and the Shamisen performance was absolutely incredible. Honestly had a great time and would readily recommend this tour for folks interested in getting to know Asakusa and some Japanese history.

Great experience! We showed up at 7pm and were offered drinks immediately by friendly staff. Dinner was served shortly after which was excellent. Drinks were promptly refilled as the cast came around to introduce themselves. Make sure to order a refill drink right before the show because service finishes when the show begins. The show begins promptly at 8pm and was excellent. There are only a few words spoken which are in Japanese but you can follow along without translation, it’s more about the presentation than the story. After the show, you’re invited on stage to a picture with the cast if you want. I didn’t know what to expect when booking this tour but was definitely happy with it as was my 15 year old niece. The entire staff and cast were so friendly.

Funny park with a lot of fun traditional shows inside. There are lots of mini games and food with just a few bucks extra.

The cast told the story from the first second in there dance The meal was great

Great way of experience Japanese culture, definitely recommend it.
