Rickshaws can often be seen in the vicinity of Senso-ji among the throngs of worshippers. Since Senso-ji is not the only attraction in Asakusa, a leisurely ride on a rickshaw may be an interesting way to visit various places. It's a lot easier to do so without having to walk.

As I wandered around the Senso-ji temple grounds, a rickshaw came along nearby. The rickshaw drivers are dressed in traditional costumes. The hats are especially distinctive. The rickshaw driver, who wears a hat that looks like a shiitake mushroom, not only pulls the rickshaw but also serves as a tour guide. When the rickshaw driver stops the rickshaw, he explains something to the customers while pointing to the distance.
