Ricshaw and Kimono Package

Full Kimono Set with a Ride on the Rickshaw

Today, rickshaws can be seen across the globe.  From the vast images we see, one might imagine it to be characteristically south asian.  But what do rickshaws have to do with Japan?

The word “rickshaw” comes from the Japanese “jinrikisha”, literally meaning “man-powered vehicle”.  It was invented in 1869, around the time Japan ended its isolation and opened its doors to western influences.  Since horse-drawn carriages were too expensive, the man-pulled cars became the mode of transportation.  Effectively, owing to the fact that rickshaws were driven by people, they offered a more comfortable ride than their animal-driven counterparts.

By 1872, the number of ricks running the streets of Japan rose to 40,000.  Nitobe Inazo, the acclaimed author of “Bushido: The Soul of Japan,” commented on the soaring population of rickshaw drivers, how they even probably outnumbered the number of carpenters (mind you, any form of structure in Japan at the time were wooden).   The ride became popular for foreigners visiting this new and exotic land and Asakusa became go-to place to catch one.

The ride itself is great.  You get to see Tokyo from a completely different view and the ride’s unwittingly smooth.  Plus the driver will be giving you  tidbits of facts and info along the way.
