Feel the charm of New and Old Tokyo

Tokyo is truly a city of many faces from ancient temples, high-tech culture, to quirky themed restaurants.
This tour is a great introduction to one of the largest cities in the world without feeling overwhelmed.
You can get a feel of the modern city (west side) as well as old towns of Tokyo (east side). I would also suggest to spend a full day in each side of Tokyo that offers very different atmosphere to embrace a whole Tokyo experience.

Enjoy this unique city through the eyes of locals at your own pace! I would love to share my love of Tokyo with you.


Here is a sample itinerary. It can be customized to suit your interests and needs. We can visit 3-4 places with the full-day tour. Let's make it special and memorable!

・Asakusa - Tokyo's biggest and oldest temple, Senso-ji, comes with a great view of riverside
・Akihabara - Anime & Electronic town, fun video game arcades
・Japanese Gardens or Ueno Park / Ameyoko Market
・Yanesen - a neighborhood of Tokyo with its quaint atmosphere, shitamachi vibe

・Harajuku - Takeshita fashion street × Meiji-jingu shrine
・Omotesando - Modern architectures
・Shibuya - The world busiest intersection
・Shinjuku - Tokyo's biggest entertainment district (neon lights, drinking alleys)

A Recent Review of this tour

Eriko did a great job of tailoring the tour to my interests. In addition to seeing parts of Tokyo only a local would know I feel like I spent the day with old friend! This tour will be one of the real highlights of my visit to Tokyo. Thank you Eriko!
