A wonderful mixture of tradition and modernity where East meets West with a private guide
I will show you around Tokyo that has been the de facto capital of Japan for more than 400 years since 1603 when the Tokugawa Shogunate came into power, with Ieyasu Tokugawa, the first Tokugawa Shogun being given by the Emperor full authority to administer Japan. As such, Tokyo has a great number of historic, religious and cultural attractions for visitors. Selecting the most attractive places of interest from among them, this tour is a fantastic way to discover Tokyo. Of course, items in this itinerary are all optional and it would be my pleasure to take your wishes and needs into consideration for a customized tour. We can even make changes on the day!

We had the absolute BEST time with Kenji. He was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Tokyo and japan and we covered so much of the city. It was a great way to see much of Tokyo in the short period of time we had. We walked about ten miles throughout the day and he helped us navigate the public transit. He was very flexible throughout the trip and Even gave us tips for other places to go and see. Truly a friend by the end of our day. You can't see Tokyo without Kenji! You will not regret it !!
