Your guide will pick you up in the lobby of your hotel at 9 am, and the first visit of the day is to Asakusa. Your guide will explain you all about the history of this charming traditional area and take you not just to the main streets but show you some of its side streets as well.
Then it is time to see a very different side of this multi-faceted metropolis as we head to Akihabara. The guide will tell you about Tokyo’s subcultures and show you some surprising sights you wouldn’t have found so easily by yourself. You will also get the opportunity to play a high-energy game.
After the madness of Akihabara, you will go to Imperial Palace Plaza where you will see the surroundings of where the Emperor and his family live including the famous Megane bridge.
Next on the itinerary is Shibuya, a must-see for its crazy scramble crossing and loyal dog Hachiko. Don’t worry about getting lost, as your expert guide will lead the way.
We will also make a stop at Ueno Park, one of the most famous places in Tokyo to see the blooming cherry blossoms and see the locals get merry under the trees during their hanami picnics.

Today you have a day for yourself to explore more of Tokyo’s highlights and lesser-known areas. You can also go for one of our optional services: tickets for the very popular Ghibli Museum in Mitaka or tickets to Tokyo Disneyland or Tokyo DisneySea.
If you’d like to see more highlights that were not included in the tour yesterday you can check out the Meiji Shrine, Harajuku, or Ginza if you like (window) shopping. Nakameguro is another amazing area to enjoy the cherry blossoms.
If you’d like to go a bit more off the beaten path in Tokyo you can go to Shibamata, Kagurazaka, Monzennakacho, or Nihonbashi for a more historical feel. If you are looking for some more ‘hip’ and younger areas then Kiyosumi, Shimokitazawa or Koenji might be just what you are looking for. If you want to go deeper into subcultures be sure to check out Nakano or Ikebukuro.
In the evening the Shimbashi/Yurakucho area or Shinjuku are worth checking out for dinner and drinks.

Today your guide will pick you up in the lobby of your hotel at 9 am and take you straight to the Philosopher’s Path. This area is especially amazing during the cherry blossom season and is best visited a bit earlier to avoid the most crowded times. Next on the itinerary is the Silver Pavillion, or Ginkakuji, which played a large role in spreading the arts in Japan. Your guide will tell you all about the illustrious history of the temple which will make the place come alive.
The Heian Shrine is modeled after the original Imperial Palace and has a short but interesting history which you will learn about while walking around the beautiful grounds. The Kiyomizu Temple and its surrounding district called Higashiyama are some of Kyoto’s most popular highlights and rightfully so with the amazing views of the area and the many artisan shops.
The tour will end in one of Kyoto’s most talked-about district, the Gion area. This is where the geiko and maiko, Kyoto’s geisha and apprentice geisha, entertain their guests in one of the many teahouses. If you are lucky you might spot one of the ladies going about her business and the guide will tell you what their job entails and the history of this work. Your guide will drop you off and give you some tips to enjoy the rest of the evening here.

Anna Leano – 2022 summer –
We are really grateful we found you guys online, it was truly a great vacation. We had so much fun. And thank you so much for all the help and all the new information we learned about your culture.

Silvana group from Italy – 2022 summer –
We have arrived safely back from Japan and I am back in the office again this morning. I would like to thank you for all the services you gave us, everything was very well organized and professional. Everyone was very kind, always on time, and very nice, including the three guides we had. It was very good and helpful to have guides in cities like Tokyo and Kyoto especially, where we got a lot of good advice and information. Once again thank you very much from me and all the rest of the group. We really enjoyed Japan, it was so different from Italy but so charming! Really hope to come back one day.
