One more adventure in old and modern Tokyo.
If you have One-day layover in Tokyo, you can enjoy one more adventure starting from Asakusa. You are visiting Sensoji Temple in Asakusa, which is the oldest temple in Tokyo. Walking around the main approach lined with lots of souvenir shops is enjoyable. After that, walking through Ginza, one of the high-end shopping districts in Tokyo, and having lunch, you are visiting Meiji Jingu Shrine surrounded by dense forest where you can enjoy a surprisingly quiet atmosphere. The final destination is the Imperial Palace, where Emperor and Empress live. After the tour, I will see you to Tokyo station.

Naoko was wonderful! Her communication and organization before the trip was prompt and extremely thorough. The tour itself was great. Despite some fairly poor weather conditions, she adapted on the fly and we got a great taste of the city in a day. She also had a great knowledge of the city and how to get around, and her efficiency allowed us to do and see a lot in a short time. I would highly recommend Naoko to anyone!
