Acrobat Firemen in Asakusa on Sunday

If you can’t make the fire boat demonstration at the Tokyo Port Festival this Saturday then why not head over to the Asakusa Yayoi Matsuri (festival) on Sunday, May 25th. Or you could do both!

The Edo Shobo Kinen-kai (Edo Civilian Fire Fighters’ Association) will be hosting a demonstration of acrobatics on fire-ladders at 12 Noon at the Senso-ji Temple in Asakusa.

To get to the Senso-ji Temple (Asakusa Kannon Temple) take Tokyo Metro to Asakusa Station and follow the signs to the Kaminarimon Gate.

While you are there why not make a day of it and check out some of the other things to do and see in Asakusa?  Here are just a few of your options:
