Full day Tokyo must see tour featuring a variety of interesting spots

This tour can surely satisfy your interest in viewing a wide variety of features in the dynamic megalopolis, Tokyo.
I am very pleased to show them to first time visitors, as well as the repeat visitors who may want to further explore Tokyo.
You will be attracted by authentic Japanese history, nice collaboration of traditional and modern culture, natural beauty, interesting coexistence of Shinto and Buddhism religion, seasonal delicacy of Japanese cuisine and energetic economy.

You may choose one of the following two optional itineraries for one day tour or both of them for a two day tour if you want.


(Option 1)
-Meet at your hotel
-Imperial Palace Nijubashi/Garden (old Edo castle site)
-Asakusa (Sensoji, Nakamise shopping street. enjoy traditional lunch)
-Meiji jingu shrine (power spot shrine dedicated to Emperor Meiji)
-Harajuku & Omote sando (modern shopping street)
-Shibuya (scramble crossing & Hachiko dog statue)
-Disband at your hotel

(Option 2)
-Meet at your hotel
-Tokyo Tower (landmark tower of Tokyo. enjoy beautiful view. )
-Tsukiji fish market (tour around exciting market. taste fabulous sushi lunch. only inner market is closed on Sundays and Wednesdays, but outer market is open. )

*I also recommend that we visit Ryogoku as a option instead of Tsukiji market which is famous for sumo wrestling town. you can enjoy chanko nabe lunch (favorite food of sumo wrestlers)
*I am happy to flexibly customize this tour according to your interest.

A Recent Review of this tour

We were very happy with "Masa" as our guide for two days in Tokyo. He took us around to the most important sights in Tokyo, gave us commentary without overloading us with too many facts and stories as we have experienced with other guides. Masa was accommodating with our preferences and with the limitations of my bad knees. He proposed changes to our program to take into account different weather on the two days. We highly recommend him !
