Travelling Deep into Asakusa with the Help of Shafu

Rickshaw pullers recommend Asakusa highlights

Tobu Railway Co., LTD.

Tobu Railway Co. LTD. introduces the Asakusa and TOKYO SKYTREE area, one of Japan’s leading tourist destinations. The area’s rickshaw pullers, known in Japanese as 'shafu', are extremely knowledgeable about the area and can help you make the most out of your holiday. They can take you to out-of-the way spots for great photos and to long-standing recommended local merchants, providing great service to domestic and overseas customers alike.

Tobu Railway recommends that you take the opportunity to hire a rickshaw puller and travel deep into the Asakusa and TOKYO SKYTREE area to discover all that it has to offer.
