After meeting at your hotel in central Tokyo, we first visit the vibrant outer fish market, the biggest sushi and sea food shop district in the world. Then, we enjoy taking a walk in the Imperial Gardens. After that, we head for Sensoji temple, the oldest one in Tokyo, with the famous Nakamise 'traditional' shopping street in its precinct. Alternatively, we can visit the world famous Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Omote Sando Fashion Avenuve (Tokyo's Avenue des Champs-Élysées), the 202m high observatory at Tokyo GOV building, etc.
