Visit Tokyo town to see old and modern phases with a private guide


I chose the most exciting & interesting spots for non-Japanese travelers visiting Tokyo.
(The tour doesn't include Toyosu market because the access is not good and fishes can't be seen closely. )

Tsukiji market: No. 1 fish-market in the world, an experience of tea ceremony in the traditional feudal lord created garden named Hamarikyu garden, Asakusa-Sensoji Kannon-oldest temple in Tokyo, remain of historic Edo-period (1600-1867) castle of Imperial Palace, sophisticated shopping zone of Omotesando street, a quiet residential area in the back street of Harajuku district, then Shibuya crossing, all is worth while to visit and see.

Meiji Shrine, 100yrs-old solemn and beautiful Shintoism Shrine dedicated to Meiji Emperor and Empress, Harajuku(famous for Cosplay gangs). At the last, visit Shibuya where is the famous town for the busiest crossing in the world.

A Recent Review of this tour

Yumi was a fantastic guide! Knowledgable, great English, & she changed one stop of the tour based on input from our 11 year old daughter. Yumi took the time to get to know us, and it was a pleasure to travel with her on our first day in Tokyo. She showed us many areas that we returned to over the next few days - and we felt so much more confident to navigate the city based on her direction. She also made sure we had several photos of our entire family at these great locations! Thank you Yumi!
