Introduction to Tokyo - Customizable to suit your plans and preference!

First time in Tokyo? You must have so many questions!

-How do I get around using public transportation?
-What are the most useful Japanese words/phrases I should know?
-What are the cultural dos and don'ts?
-How do I order food at local restaurants?

Don't worry! - Even if it's your very first time to set a foot in this mega city, you can explore Tokyo like a local if you learn all the basics at the beginning of your stay from a friendly and knowledgeable local guide!

This is a stress-free and carefully organized private tour that is optimized to get the most value out of your limited time in Tokyo!


My recommended day visit area for first-timers:
・Tsukiji(Fish market gone but still fascinating and must-see place)
・Waterbus ride(40min river cruise from Asakusa to Hamarikyu garden)
・Asakusa(Home to Tokyo's oldest semso-ji temple)
・Tokyo station(beautiful station building with over 100 years of history)
・Imperial palace East garden(where the great shogun of the Edo Period resided)
・Ginza(high-end shopping district)
・Meiji shrine(magnificent shrine in an enormous manmade forest)
・Ueno(Peaceful large park with museums and known for cherry blossom drinking party under Sakura in Spring)
・Yanaka(Peaceful Old Tokyo neighborhood with small galleries without high-rise building)

A Recent Review of this tour

Haruka was great! We saw a lot of Tokyo. We were overwhelmed with so much goings on in Tokyo but Haruka made it fun. She was well organized and at the same time flexible enough to accomodate everyone's wants and wishes. We stopped to get all out bucklist items done. Exhausted but wonderful day with Haruka!
