A customized experience to meet interests for everyone in the family


We can consider visiting the more children-friendly sites in Tokyo on this tour. Like my other tours, the public transportation will be used, which will efficiently get us around the city. By the end of the day, you'll feel confidence and navigating the city on your own!

Itinerary

Just some examples. . .

The museums in Ueno Park; history, natural science, there is also a zoo with pandas!

The electronics district in Akihabara

Ride on the automated Yurikamome Train

Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation (Miraikan) with the demonstration of the ASIMO robot
*Closed on Tuesdays

The "scramble intersection" and Hachiko dog statue at Shibuya Station

I can help to sort out things that are possible to see on your own/sites better visited together with a guide.

A Recent Review of this tour

Ken was a great tour guide. He showed us around Tokyo on our first day in the city, giving us a great overview of the city and a taste of a number of places we would go back to explore further later. He also helped us organise travel cards and helped us to work our how the public transport system worked. He was very understanding of our children who were tired from the flight to Japan, even suggesting that we finish the tour with a trip to a toy store rather than more site seeing- a hit in their eyes!
