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.

A Recent Review of this tour

Eriko was amazing! She was super flexible and scheduled a unique tour around our own interests. The tour took us to see parts of Toyko we never would have experienced otherwise. She gave us helpful tips on how to travel around that we never would have realized. She even helped us set up our JR Pass and Suica card. All around, a great tour and a great guide!
