According to the legend ……, about 1400 years ago, two fishermen fished for a 5.5 cm high gold statue of Kannon and thought it was a “Kannon manifestation”, so people in the neighborhood raised money to build a temple to worship this gold Buddha, and this is the origin of Asakusa Temple.

Second stop Haruko Tower

Also known as Tokyo Skytree, the Skytree was certified as the world’s tallest tower by Guinness World Records on November 17, 2011, making it the tallest self-supporting radio tower in the world and currently the second tallest building in the world, after Burj Khalifa in Dubai. The purpose of the tower was to reduce the obstruction to the transmission of radio waves caused by the high buildings in downtown Tokyo. Today, the TOKYO SKYTREE is more than just an observation deck; it has become a large commercial complex with shopping, dining, and entertainment, and is visited by a large number of people.

Third stop: Odaiba

Are you hungry after a long stroll ……?

Well, let’s pause the chase and try the food at Hilton Hotel with us.

For lunch, we chose SEASCAPE restaurant at Hilton Hotel in Odaiba. The restaurant offers a wide variety of buffet style dishes with the concept of “fresh”, “pleasing”, “healthy” and “energetic”. A wide range of buffet style food. Especially the desserts are not to be missed!

After the Odaiba, the next program is a cruise. This time we are going to take this charming antique cruise ship, called Ozabune Yasakimaru. Sea breeze, a different kind of city tour is opened.

In 1632, Tokugawa Iemitsu undefined{(}the third shogun of the Edo shogunate) ordered the construction of a luxury cruise ship named “World No.”. Its hull was designed with a wagyu eclectic design, with a dragon head at the bow. This luxury ship, which was only for shoguns, daimyo and other nobles, was maintained only for less than half a century because of the high maintenance cost.

Now, Yasutake Maru is perfectly reproduced. Standing on the traditional style deck, you can see the Tokyo Tower, the Skytree, Rainbow Bridge and other buildings representing modern Tokyo from afar, and marvel at the perfect blend of classical and modern. Close your eyes, open your arms and feel the sea breeze gently blowing.

Fourth stop: Imperial Palace

After a 40-minute trip through the past and present, are you still in love with “Edo”? Then let’s see the masterpiece of Edo, the Imperial Palace!

Located in the heart of Tokyo, the Imperial Palace is a residence for the Emperor and his family, hidden deep in the woods and gardens. It is a tranquil space in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the modern city with its tall buildings.

Wide roads, swarming crowds, large green areas, carefully manicured black pines ……
