Visiting the most of Tokyo's attractions in a day

Join me on a tour of Tokyo's best spots with incredible contrasts!
First, We'll visit Imperial Palace/ East Garden to enjoy strolling along the centuries old moat and the garden. Then, we'll enjoy Fish Market, the biggest fish market in the world. After that, we'll come to the Tokyo's oldest temple, Sensoji and Nakamise shopping arcade. You can grab some lunch there. Then, we'll enjoy taking a walk in Meiji Jingu Shrine surrounded by a serene forest in the middle of down town Tokyo. Finally we'll go up and enjoy the great aerial view from the observatory (202m high) of Tokyo Met. GOV building in Shinjuku.

A Recent Review of this tour

Hiro was outstanding! He planned a terrific itinerary for us, but kept it flexible so that we could add-on to it. He is full of information about Tokyo and the venues we visited, as well as about Japanese culture in general. He also has a good sense of humor. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent with him. An added bonus: Hiro took us to an excellent tempura restaurant for lunch. We can't remember a better tempura meal, in or out of Japan. His English is superb. A++
