Odaiba, River cruise, Asakusa, Imperial Palace


Through this tour, you will see modern and traditional faces of Tokyo.

1) Odaiba is a futuristic artificial island from where you can see skyscrapers of central Tokyo over the Rainbow bridge.

2) Sumida river cruise to Asakusa is good to relax with seeing the Tokyo Sky-Tree tower, water front buildings, and traditional neighborhoods of old Tokyo.

3) Asakusa's main attraction is Sensoji Buddhist temple built in the 7th century. Along the Nakamise street, it is fun to see shops selling local snacks and souvenirs.

4) The Imperial Palace is the residence of Emperor's family. It used to be the castle of Tokugawa Shoguns and it is surrounded by moats and massive stone walls.

It is possible to modify the itinerary according to customer' interests.

A Recent Review of this tour

This tour with Eddy was quite simply the best one we have ever been on. He struck the perfect balance between education and fun. Our 2 children can get bored of sightseeing but they absolutely loved it. Eddy's knowledge of Japan's history as well as origami meant that we now know far more than we did before and can also make an origami box! Eddy has clearly given a lot of thought as to the content of the day. I honestly cant think of what he could have done differently. The day was excellent.
