Customized tour of Tokyo

We will visit the highlights of Tokyo on public transportation. Whether you only have a day and want to make the most of your stay or you have a full week and want to get a good start, let me customize your tour so that you can visit the sites that suits your interests.
By the end of the day, you will have a better understanding of the city, and the confidence to navigate the city on your own!


Just one example. . .

*Imperial Palace (East Gardens closed on Mon/Fri)
*Old town of Asakusa
*Electric town of Akihabara
*The view of the city from the Tokyo Tower or the Government Building in Shinjuku
