Let's be a Tokyo expert traveller!
At the beginning of the tour, I will give you some explanation and tips to use public transportation so that you can travel around by yourselves without any concerns. And you are going to visit the Imperial Palace in the morning, which is quiet and beautiful. After that, moving to Tsukiji Fish Market. You can look around the inner market and going through the outer market to take subway lines to go to Asakusa. In Asakusa, you can look around Sensoji Temple, the oldest temple in Tokyo. The last destination is Meiji Jingu Shrine surrounded by dense forest where you can enjoy a surprisingly quiet atmosphere. The tour ends around the Harajuku area so that you can start your own adventure!

An excellent day with a most charming and professional guide. Nothing was a problem, and going overtime was irrelevant. Highly recommended.
