Discover Real Tokyo & Japanese Culture
What is your image of Tokyo? Tokyo is truly a city of many faces with historical shrines and temples set amidst the hustle and bustle of a city. This tour is a great introduction to one of the largest cities in the world. You can get a feel of the modern city (west side) as well as old towns of Tokyo (east side - it's where I grew up!). I would also suggest spending a full day on each side of Tokyo that offers a very different atmosphere to embrace a whole Tokyo experience.
By the end of the tour, you learn about everyday life in Tokyo, how to navigate Tokyo's train system, and most importantly, gain a deeper understanding of Japanese culture. Enjoy this unique city through the eyes of locals at your own pace! I look forward to sharing my love of Tokyo with you.

3 person group in our 60s. We had a great time with Eriko. She is relaxed, well informed, and speaks English very well. She has a warm personality and is very likable. She taught us a lot about modern Japanese culture. Very highly recommended.
