Evening Forum: Have You Really Seen Asakusa?

Author: Ninomiya House, Issue: June 2006, Topic: Evening Forum

One of the first places that you must have already visited upon arrival in Tsukuba would be Asakusa, I believe. You already saw the temple, the shopping area and the crowd, you saw the people flocking around the holy smoke, hoping to cure their physical problem....

But, why not visit Asakusa once again, with a national certified guide, paying a little more close attention to what you see there. Have you noticed that this is one place where you can see the various traditions that still practiced everywhere in Japan? Let us start our trip to this wonderland of Asakusa tonight.

  • Lecturer: Ms. Narumi Ikezawa (Bilingual tour guide)
  • Time: 18:30-19:30 Lecture and Q & A, 19:30-20:00 Exchange of personal views
  • Charge: 500 yen per person (Drinks will be served)
  • Language: English
  • Chair: Dr. Shigeyuki Kimura (Chairman of the Board of Directors of SNTT)

Pre-registration required. Please contact the Ninomiya House Administration Office by Wed. June 14th. The registration will close when reaches capacity. If you wish to bring little children, we can provide a babysitter, so be sure to inform the office as well. There is limited space for parking, so we would appreciate it if you come with friends and please be sure to park in the visitor's parking area.
