By selecting some exciting spots you want to visit in the area with a private guide


There are many exciting spots in Tokyo and its vicinity. Why don't you create your own tour by combining some of them?

I can assist you in advance. One of my suggestions is as follows:

National Museum in Ueno Park, Asakusa, FukagawaFudodo temple, TomiokaHachiman shrine .
National Museum has an excellent collection of Japanese culture. Asakusa is one of the most popular spots and you can enjoy shopping souvenirs and meet many ordinary folks.
At Fukagawa Fudodo temple you can attend a "Goma" Ritual Service of Shingon Esoteric Buddhism. It will be a very impressive experience for you in Japan. You can understand an aspect of Japanese culture and spiritual life.

Examples of Exciting Spots:
Shopping: Akihabara, Harajuku, Department stores in Shinjuku, and Ginza.

Culture: National Museum, Edo Tokyo Museum, National Museum of Emerging Science and Technology.

Other Exciting Spots: Tsukiji Fish Market, "Pokemon" Center, Imperial Palace, Hamarikyu Garden

A Recent Review of this tour

What a pleasant surprise. We were able to book Susumu at the last minute and from the begining he was pleasant and answered every question. He took us off the beaten path to a Buddist ceremony and many other hidden treasures. We really enjoyed our day!
