What you'll do

You’ll get to grips with Tokyo’s iconic central neighborhoods and dive into their unique culture along the way, from an anime overdose in pop-culture mad Akihabara, the wacky themed cafes of Shibuya or authentic Japanese cuisine in Shinjuku. You’ll have the inside line on the constantly evolving trends that define this city, and speaking of, once you’ve mastered the train lines, you’re really in business. From learning the tricks of how to effortlessly eat sushi or slurp ramen like a local to which neighborhoods you should visit during your trip, your host will spill their lifetime’s worth of Tokyo knowledge, so you spend the rest of your trip moving and grooving like a local too!

Where you’ll go

Need a crash course in navigating the organized chaos of Tokyo? Your local insider will lead you every step of the way, focussing on a compressed, bite-sized chunk of this throbbing metropolis. Learn how to turn the Tokyo Metro from a tricky tangle into a useful and efficient tool, opening you up to iconic locations like Shibuya’s crazy crossing, the Harajuku district’s cult fashion hubs, and the skyscrapers of Shinjuku. Get the lay of the land from the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building, or explore the maze of yokochos - alleyways - that fuel the city’s workforce with ramen noodles and okonomiyaki pancakes. Let your guide ease you into local customs, and pepper them with any questions you may have - it’s the perfect introduction to the city.
