What you’ll do

You’ll spend a morning, afternoon, or even something in between with one of our hosts, uncovering Tokyo’s marvels as you explore the neon-lit city together. Every neighborhood in Tokyo has its own distinct flavor, so maybe try zoom in on one of these microcosms and absorb its unique sights and sounds - it’s not everyday you see cosplayers strolling around in wacky Fluro outfits. Maybe you’d like to discover the highlights of the neighborhood you’re staying in, or simply stroll through the lantern-lined lanes of Tokyo’s older districts. This city will overdose your senses; where ancient culture meets a love of all things new! Action-lovers might be keen to catch a sumo match with a host that can explain the rules to you, or alternatively, get sky (or around 40 floors) high and enjoy sushi with a view. Trust us on this, it’s a great way to get an overview of Tokyo’s sheer scale (just don’t look down). Your host would love to share with you their favorite places, but they also can’t wait to hear what you’ve been dreaming of doing. You just need to say the words, and we’ll do our best to make it happen!

TOKYO, HALF A DAY IN TOKYO, YOUR WAYBelinda

I didn't regret choosing Belinda as our host.

I was looking for a local host in Tokyo who can speak English and Tagalog. I found Belinda on the list of local hosts so I personally picked her. I did not regret choosing her. Even before the tour started, Belinda and I have been exchanging messages already regarding the tour. She emailed me an itinerary of the places she would take us to. My husband and I only have a few hours to do the walking tour since we are on a layover. Belinda was very helpful prior to the said date. She communicated well with me through email and whatsapp. Just a few days before the tour, I had a change of plan. I told her I needed to meet up with a friend and that she had to revise the itinerary or at least cut the tour short so I would have time for my friend. She agreed and revised everything for me. She was very helpful and kind. During the tour, I have learned so much from her. She took me, my husband and baby to beautiful places in Tokyo and we ended the tour right on time. I would highly recommend her as a guide! Thanks for everything Belinda!

Highlight of my trip

My local guide did honestly feel like I was going round Tokyo with a friend. She took me to all the places I wanted to and all the places she thought I would like to aswell. So many hidden gems that I didn’t know were there. Highly recommend anyone going to Tokyo to do this.
