A four hour Tokyo trip full of attractions
After meeting at your hotel in central Tokyo, we'll first visit the vibrant fish market, the biggest in the world. Then, we'll enjoy taking a walk in the Imperial East Garden in the compound of Imperial Palace. After that, we'll head for Sensoji temple, the oldest one in Tokyo, with the famous Nakamise 'traditional' shopping street in front of it. You can try an authentic but simple tea ceremony trial at Happoen, one of the most elegant Japanese style gardens in Tokyo, if you like it. Instead, we can visit the world famous Shibuya Scramble Crossing, Omote Sand Avenuve (dubbed as Tokyo's Avenue des Champs-Élysées), the 202m high observatory at Tokyo GOV building, etc.
This is a basic itinerary subject to changes. Please see notes as well.

We just completed a lovely tour this morning in Tokyo with Hiro. He was very gracious and informative and gave us a good overview for first time visit. He is a gentleman and great representative of his homeland!
