A stroll to some of Tokyo's most famous spots!


The tour is a long stroll to be followed at your own pace. Shinjuku-gyoen is possibly Tokyo's most beautiful park, being very big it will be up to you how long
to spend there. The tropical greenhouse is definitely worth a visit.
The entrance to Meiji Jingu is a 15 minutes walk away from the park's south exit. The shrine's park ends right in front of Harajuku station.
The distance from the entrance of Cat Street to Shibuya station can be covered in 20 minutes.
There will be plenty of time to visit the respective areas thoroughly.
Of course the route can be varied on request, just let me know what would you like to add or skip.
