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 places that suits your interests.
By the end of the day, you will have a better grasp on the size and overall geography of the metropolis and knowing how to use the efficient public transportation system should boost the confidence to navigate the city on your own!

A Recent Review of this tour

We very much enjoyed and appreciated the tour by Ken. His English is excellent, and he is quite intuitive, personable and charming. We got a great sense of Tokyo, including a number of different neighborhoods understanding the history, and how things have changed over the decades. Ken was also great in teaching us how to use the subway/train system. We also learned a lot about food, Japanese phrases, and cultural aspects. We had a lot of fun. Would very HIGHLY recommend Ken!
