What you'll do

Tokyo is famous for so much, from the wild dash across Shibuya Crossing to ancient temples like Sensō-ji where tranquility reigns to futuristic experiences like ordering sushi on an iPad, and whilst it would be impossible to see everything in half a day, having a local insider show you the city is the perfect way to pack the most into your time. You could be mesmerized by the kaleidoscope of LED adverts and fluro anime costumes worn by cosplayers (gaming superfans) in Akihabara, a district in central Tokyo known as ‘Electric Town’. Or perhaps amble between nostalgic teahouses, ramshackle ramen shops and leaning mid-20th-century Showa-era homes of laid-back Sangenjaya with your host to lead you through these labyrinthine alleyways.

Where you'll go

In central Tokyo, you could dip between the futuristic edifices of Shinjuku - it’s not called the ‘Skyscraper District’ for nothing - or explore neighboring Shibuya, another of Tokyo’s wildly fast-paced and enormous central districts. But no experience in the heart of Tokyo would be complete without witnessing the whirlwind of fluro-colored wigs and outrageously-themed cafes in Harajuku, the epicenter of Tokyo’s youth culture. Or perhaps you’d like to explore west Tokyo’s trendy neighborhoods like bohemian Sangenjaya and Shimokitazawa, where Tokyo’s punk movement began. In these districts, you’ll discover another side of Tokyo that you never knew existed as you meander between murals of vivacious street art and tiny thrift stores.
