Enjoy the essence of Tokyo's best spots in 300 minutes


Join me on a tour of Tokyo's best - spots with incredible contrasts!

As a model course, we'll enjoy the famous 'Shibuya Crossing' and stroll around Shibuya. Then, we'll move to Shinjuku to enjoy an amazing view from the observatory (202m high) of Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building. After that, we'll head for Harajuku district, where we visit Meiji Jingu Shrine surrounded by deep woods in incredible serenity in down town Tokyo. From Meiji Shrine, Omote Sando and Harajuku streets are within walking distance and we enjoy strolling there. In addition, we can drop by the beautiful Imperial East Garden next to the Palace, Sensoji Temple (the oldest one in Tokyo) & its traditional Nakamise Shopping Street. We can of course replace one of above places by the world famous fish market in Tsukiji.
