Choose among dynamic districts

As the biggest city in the world, Tokyo’s sprawling metropolis is packed with unique neighborhoods. Some are iconic in their own right (glitzy Ginza, electrifying Shibuya), and others are a little off-the-beaten-path (creative Koenji, trendy Sangenjaya). Private guided tours of Tokyo are the easiest way to get to grips with the distinct personalities of each diverse district – and find the areas that suit you best. Whether you travel back in time in historic Kawagoe or get lost among vintage threads in retro Shimokitazawa, we’ll plan your Tokyo private tours in the districts you’ll love.
