Enjoy Tokyo's BEST & MUST places with a seasoned professional guide
Do you want to learn history and culture of Japan? Then, this is your choice. We usually start walking in Meiji Jingu Shrine surrounded by serene and deep woods in the middle of down town. From there, we keep walking down Omote Sando Avenue (Tokyo Champs Elysees) and Takeshita streets (Teenager fashion hub) in Harajuku. Then, we take the subway to famous 'Shibuya Crossing' and enjoy the atmosphere of the coolest capital of young Tokyoite. We further move to the Imperial East/ Outer Garden for some more stroll. Then, we drop by Tsukiji for Honguaji temple and the outer fish market for the world best sushi lunch or brunch. Finally, we visit drop by Sensoji Temple (the oldest and arguably the most popular one in Tokyo) & its Nakamise Shopping Street. You may add/ replace one or more of these places by Akihabara electric town, Tokyo government observatory (202m high), Hamarikyu garden, Shinjuku gyoen park, Yanaka street, Edo museum, or others of your choice.

Hiro was very prompt, polite and professional. He guided us through the subway system to most of the top sites and gave great insight to each one and our questions. We also ate some great Sushi! We felt comfortable afterwards taking the subway on our own the next day with the knowledge and tools he gave us. Thanks!!
