The tour visits some of the most popular spots in Tokyo with good reputation. Old and modern, intriguing historical sites and relaxing scenic beauty. The best tour for the first timer.

Tokyo ("Eastern Capital") is Japan's capital and the one of most populous cities in the world, which has so many attractions including traditional culture, manga(cartoons), modern arts and other mishmash of shopping, entertainment, etc. . .

It consists of 23 wards, and cities, towns and villages that have their own characteristics. For example, Asakusa has traditional ambiance, Akihabara is a pop culture center, Shinjuku caters to all ages with all types of restaurants, and Fashionable Harajuku is particulary popular among youth.

A Recent Review of this tour

Hide did an outstanding job; he was on time, well organized, spoke excellent English and focused on our needs. Unfortunately, I encountered knee and leg problems that made extended walking difficult, and this caused me to reduce some of the planned activities. But this in no way reflects poorly on the services Hide provided. I would recommend his services to others and see him as a valuable resource in the tourism community.
