Make the most of your layover at Narita with a private guide

If you have a 7 hour or more layover at Narita airport, why not let me show you the highlights of Tokyo! Downtown Tokyo is only a 1 hr to 1. 5 hr comfortable train ride from Narita.

I will meet you at Narita Airport arrival lounge (or your Narita area hotel), guide you to the train station and subway for a unforgettable tour of Tokyo from a local's point of view.

At the conclusion of the tour, I will take you to Tokyo or Ueno station and see you off back to Narita.

Day or night, this is a much better thing to do than sitting in the airport!

Please book me at least 1 day ahead for the day you want a tour because I have to check the train schedule.


Meet at Narita Airport (or Tokyo Station if desired)

Travel to Tokyo by express train

This is your day. I would recommend we see the Shinto shrine (Meiji Jingu) in Harajyuku and the most important Buddhist temple (Sensoji temple) in Asakusa.

You can choose a few places below,
1. Asakusa : the most colorful and nostalgic downtown (where Sensoji is located)
Traditional Japanese garden : Hama-rikyu gardens or Rikugien (you can try Japanese tea at the both) or Koishikawa garden
3. Akihabara : shopping district for electronics store & subculture
4. Imperial palace - you cannot see the palace itself
5. Tsukiji outer market
6. Harajyuku : Meiji jingu shrine and fashion street for young girls

Lunch or dinner at a wide variety of restaurants (from traditional Japanese cuisine to Japanese pancake for local people)

Drop off at Tokyo Station or Ueno station for your return to Narita (or Narita if desired, at an extra cost)
